The Kudos Blend gives my guitar its fullest, richest and most satisfactory live sound. The “even-ness” of the magnetic pickup across the fretboard is second-to-none, while the fact that it is “active” allows me to accentuate the lows. It’s great for slide, fingerstyle, blues, country, anything! Adding the mic into the mix brings out the clarity that I like so much about acoustic guitar. Simply the best!
