    Sorry for taking so long to reply.

    I don't think you can go wrong with the K&K pickup. I have used one for years in my guitar and it still works great and sounds wonderful. The K&K in my Kala sounds very nice and natural. The price is nice too!

    Ordered the same uke from HMS last week and it is waiting for setup right now. Mine doesn't have the K&K but seeing the pictures of yours makes the wait for mine even harder.

    No problem with the delay, I am sorta thinking my way through this pickup business. What type of pre-amp/amp set up are you using or recommend?

    Super nice. And thank you for the multiple pictures and multiple angles. HMS does wonderful setup work. Enjoy it! Makes me wish I still had a baritone...

    I don't use a pre-amp with K&K pickups. I don't think you need one. They supply plenty of output/gain to go straight to a PA or amp. I am using a Fishman LoudBox Mini Amplifier for my Acoustic instruments these days. Very lightweight and easy to pack around. (19.7 pounds) Plenty of power for playing small venues. (60 watts) Sweet natural clean tone. Nice reverb and simply gorgeous chorus effects should you want them. There is send out the back to connect to a PA mixer. It also has two channels so you can have two instruments or one instrument and one Mic. One of the channels has an XLR input for a mic. The price is very reasonable. You can but one everyday for a little under $300. I got mine of sale for $250.

    Anyway I have used lots of different gear over the years (I am 60) and this the acoustic rig I use now days when I am not just plugging straight into the board.
