View Full Version : External Output

Hi Everyone!
I have a Lanikai LU-21C Concert Uke, and was wondering what external out put would be good for my particular uke, or if it is even worth the buy. I have absolutly no clue as to whats good and whats not as far as external output systems go, so please dont shun me!;)

This sorta helped , and i guess the mic idea would work, but i remember on a uke minutes i watched a while ago Aldrine attached an external pickup to his uke. The reason im looking for this is that i dont really like the idea of drilling a hole in my uke to install an internal pickup...sounds like a bad idea to me. I didnt see anything on there really about them, i might have just been blind but, i dont know.

[Though after reading it it provided some useful information as to how to record, which is pretty cool]

Thank you!! The second one was exactly what I was looking for! :bowdown:

One last thing, would a transducer work with a normal guitar amp or do i need an accoustic amp?
