Default X20 Nylon Recorded Through a Cling On CP01 Acoustic Pickup

Hi all. I know most of us here have pickups installed with our instruments, but for those who don't...

I grabbed the Cling On CP01 because it's not invasive on any level. It's right up there with soundhole pickups on being non-invasive, and I wanted something like that for my acoustic nylon instruments.

Anyway, it's not as great as a microphone (I don't think anyone would expect it to be), but I think it'll do the job if you're just looking to amplify so your violin friend doesn't drown you out too much.

If this product was ever on your radar, here's a recording of me attempting to play a little Japanese folk song on my Emerald X20 Nylon, recorded with a Cling On CP01 Acoustic Pickup, through a LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI Preamp, and into a Zoom H4N Pro, and processed in Audacity. Equalizer was completely level, and all I did in Audacity was raise the amplitude a little so the peak was at -3dB.

This post can probably also go somewhere else...but hey, I tested this out on a carbon fiber instrument...so...it works here, right? :-)

Hard to dance to, but I enjoyed it. The X20 sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing that !
