I put a K & K Aloha Twin passive picku[ in my Baritone Ukulele some months ago. I plugged it into a acoustic amp. (Mugig, I know it’s cheap, it’s what I have). I got a very weak sound out of the amp. I tried it into some better quality amps at the local music store (Loudbox Mini) got slightly better results. I still was not happy with my output. Today the store had a used LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI for sale at $75. I bought it and even with my cheap amp I am now getting a full rich sound with all the volume I could want. I have learned my lesson. Use a pre-amp if you have a passive pickup, You will appreciate what it brings.
