    Torn between Fishman, AER and H and K, it was the HK that came out on top. It has the most transparent sound, biggest headroom, and the most features. Effects range and depth is excellent. Works well with my Martin D18 ( Baggs p/u) , Taylor 7 series 12 fret, and my Takemine parlour..... as well as my steel and wooden body resonators, and my electro Seagull mandolin. Great bit of German made kit that inspires confidence .
