Question L.R. Baggs MicroEQ system

Just wondering whether anyone has tried this.

How does it compare to other L.R.Baggs systems and the Fishman Prefix?

Is it a good idea to put one on a Big Baby?

Don't know how it sounds on a Taylor, but it does come as standard equipment on several Seagull models. I think it uses the Ribbon Transducer pickup which is the same as the one used in the Dual Source offered by Taylor as a factory-installed option. The preamp is different in that it is only designed for one input. I think it would probably be nice in a Taylor, except that you'd have to cut a hole in the side of the guitar for it (additional installation cost).

You may want to consider the iBeam Active instead of the MicroEQ, it has a built in endpin jack preamp. You don't get outboard volume controls, though.

Thanks for the advice.

The shop I may be buying from has quoted me a price inclusive of installation that sounds reasonable.

I'm not sure if the iBeam is available here, but I'll definitely check it out.
