Bought it for use on my Greek bouzouki. I have tried various pick-ups and they all have that bright metallic sound that I don't care for. The DYN-M-P48 is a contact mic that opens up the sound of the bouzouki so that it's transparent and dynamic much like a microphone but without the proximity effect, leakage and feedback that microphones are notorious for. The DYN M has high gain (output) so careful gain settings are important to get the best sound response. High quality playback equipment will make a huge difference in the sound quality and dynamics. Pick-up placement location is important - I found the best response with the pick-up placed in line next to the bridge on the treble side. The putty that comes with the pick-up is very sticky and somewhat burdening to take off - especially when searching for a sweet spot on the sound board. I found a less sticky and very adequate alternative at the local London Drugs Store "The Poster Putty" by LePage, clean and reusable adhesive. Ordering from Michael at Djangobooks was easy and delivery to Canada took one week. Very happy with my purchase!

Having owned numerous mandolin pickups over the years, I can honestly say, that this is the best I have ever used. True acoustic sound with no feedback issues at any level. Placement on mandolin top requires a bit of experimentation, but optimal sound is easily obtained. Moving the pickup 1 inch can make a dramatic tonal response change.The low impedence cable is NOT microphonic, so one does not have to be so careful not to touch the cable. Costly, but by far the best sound. The putty used to place the condenser mic on the instrument stands up to repeated uses, and stays put... and does not harm the finish.
