Default Discrete/small magnetic pickups?

What does the market look like when it comes to discrete low-weight passive magnetic pickups like, the Lace Slim Sensor, Sixtus pickups etc.?

I'm really looking for something that, preferably, doesn't go in the soundhole, but can be mounted between the soundhole and the strings. I'll be running it through an external preamp.

Is there something available that gives a nice warm low-end that meet these criteria?

A Mi-Si Magpie might be one to consider.

Good suggestion Jon. I just got of the MiSi Magpie. It is a super light weight and balanced mag.

I actually did consider the MagPie - however, I really want to scour all passive options first. Things that go in the soundhole tend to mess to much with the air cavity and resonance response of my instruments, in my experience.

The Shadow Nano-Mag is mounted at the end of the fretboard.
