We recommend the Pure Mini pickups for all acoustic guitars as a first choice.
The Pure Mini (formerly called Pure Western Mini) is a passive system for steel string guitar, with three pickup heads and an endpin jack. It is a transducer system only and does not include a battery or on-board electronics. Don’t be fooled by the sound of some competitors’ “thin sounding” passive systems–the Pure Systems are definitely different. They sound full and rich and have sufficient output to drive most amps and PA systems directly!
We recommend the Pure Mini pickups for all acoustic guitars as a first choice. Direct installation with superglue gel is required for optimum performance but the system is still removable without damaging the guitar (you may damage the pickup though).
This pickup system will fit ANY steel string acoustic guitar! It features super balanced, flat sound transmission, warm woody tone without any quack and superior dynamic range all over the guitar’s frequency spectrum. This pickup won the silver medal in the 2006 worldwide readers’ poll of Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Our customers tell us that the Pure Mini’s output is louder than any other passive pickup on the market.
