Yep, I moved to Trance after years of UST and 2 source systems. I just decided I no longer wanted anything between saddle and saddle slot and I didn't like systems that are too invasive (glue, extra holes etc.)

There are a lot of great pickup options now days, we truly are spoiled for choice, but I'm a big fan of the Trance Amulet Mono. I went with the MVT (Volume and tone wheel) as the Trance can be a bit bright and need tonal taming.

Great sound, very little eq required, good all round pickup.

Lots of discussion on it over in the amplification subform - its well worth a search

Do check the amp section. I have an MVT and just a VT in two guitars. One guitar doesn’t have room for the dual control version so I adjusted it on the interior preamp. Both guitars sound great. I get comments alll the time about how “natural” they sound. Only thing I found better is playing directly into a condenser mic. Somewhat difficult to install. More than worth the effort.
