"3-2-1. 2&1work best with a preamp . My opinion. Magnetic pick up come in different configurations as well . I prefer humbuckers for single pick up instruments ."

Korrigan replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Time to upgrade to rod piezos
"I've only tried one rod piezo so I'm no expert but I've read that rods can have have less output than disks so a preamp is recommended. The preamp I bought came with a rod piezo so that's what I used but I didn't think to…"

Paul Cezanne replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Time to upgrade to rod piezos
"I've done it directly under the saddle, I'm happy, but I wonder, like Korrigan said, if I should have added a pre-amp. I was unable to get it to work with old-radio-amp and I think signal strength was the issue. The sound is great, but…"
