"I think that the sound production of this pick-up is the closest one can possibly get to the paradox of an `amplified acoustic double bass`! The WILSON Pick-up is the best transducer for double bass I have ever seen and heard. An Excellent offer to the bass players who want their sound amplified but tolerate absolutely no distortion of their music. I can warmly recommend the WILSON Pick-up system".
- Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, DK (late)
"When I read a list of who uses the Wilson pickup, I just had to get one. They are all my heroes!
I haven't been dissappointed. Every time I record I get comments about my great sound. The pickup has proved to be robust and I have never had feedback problems even when cranked up!.
Definitely an ideal pickup for serious player"
