I'm curious about the Schertler contact microphones from their DYN series. They come in different types (for different instruments) and with and without phantom power. As they are a bit pricey, I wonder if anyone has first hand experience with them? If so, which ukulele/wood/size did you use them with? Are there feedback issue in a group/stage setting?

I'm not even sure which one would be most suited for a ukulele. They cost more than most pickups, but they would require not modification of the instrument and could be used with multiple ukuleles.

I haven't tried the contact mics, but I have a Schertler Resocoil on my Pepe ukulele and it is pretty good. Of course, for the price, it better be!
