Possessor of a Taylor 510CE and rather above by the expression system (see my review), I was looking for a solution to find "trendy" sound "unplugged" this fantastic guitar. So you tell me that this is not possible? Well, we will see!
The expression system does not reflect the natural sound of the instrument. I tried the micro rosette M1 Active LR BAGGS from home. It's better but still too far from reality. I'll post a review on this micro ... Then, I still wanted to get out of his "piezo" although sometimes it makes it not so bad ... This is the Matrix blend heckled me: A "real "microphone in the body of the instrument just give her much closer to reality than piezo microphone or rosette single or double coil. Having done the installation myself (I have pictures of all the steps), I'm not disappointed with the result. While the microphone in the box is lined with a piezo under the bridge. The result exceeded my expectations: The sound is really close to what I get with a condenser microphone in studio. It really is stunning as the personality of the guitar spring. I have not yet tested on stage but I think the system should be properly sensitive to feedback. This is where the piezo into action. And the piezo is anyway better than taylor expression system. Tip: I mounted the dash down rather than up. It allows for reading and direct action parameters rather than trying to taton.
Scratching my next one will be safe and sound taylor purely ... I équiperai with this system! !
