What a reasonable price to get a pickup installed if you already have one?

This is what I have. Installs in about twenty minutes. In fact, there is a youtube video that will show how to do it. It sounds good and will not feedback like a piezo.

If you wanted something active, check out the Mi-Si acoustic trio, which is rechargeable (no batteries).
Or if you want to run on batteries and have tone/volume control, the Shadow nanoflex for Ukuleles is an economic + good choice.

There is a cheapo Mahalo active pickup for ukes too.
While it's a good deal for a cheap pickup, it's nowhere as good (or reliable) as the ones above. You gotta ask yourself whether it's worth making holes in your uke for such a cheap pickup.

Take it to a guitar specialist, and he'll install it for you for a small charge.
Make sure you call around, as some charge more than others.

I got a guy to install an active pickup for $30.
