Lookie what came in the mail today. It's a shadow pick-up. Hopefully hubby won't be too tired after work to install them tonight. I ordered two, one for my soprano and one for my baritone. Got tired of the stick-on one landing on my foot halfway through a song. Will let you know how they sound.

Awesome! I've heard good things about those. Until I get the cash together, though, I'll be trying my best to keep my Dean Markley stick-on stuck to my uke.

Do you have to cut holes in the uke to install the Shadow pickup?

Yes, through the bottom and under the saddle through the bridge.

Here's the how to instructions-
