Good TA
Klaus885, 18.02.2013
KB-acceptance is always so ne thing. This sounds with me with small modifications but quite natural.
Since I have eh because of phase extinguishments only one element under the foot have mounted, I have the second time rumexperimentiert and it now with a small self-made aluminum sheet and clamped to the bridge. The exact place must be found by experimentation. This makes the overall sound brighter and more natural, as the strings and finger noises are also better removed. I do not know if a much more expensive system sounds much better. Have times made a comparison with Micro and the TA comes so very very close ran. Could Shadow actually offer so, perhaps with a smaller inconspicuous 2nd element for the at the bridge-press-montage. It sounds so much better and less dull than with the standard mounting. The assembly at the bridge requires stop custom work
The - under foot foot mounting - brings nevertheless a dulfer sound as eg Piezos in the / at the bridge mounted. Now I have the mixture of both.
The small preamplifier I attached unobtrusively behind the string holder. With small gigs I need now also no extra preamplifier anymore since impedance problems are no longer necessary. If it is really loud, I still use my external preamplifier but only because of phase reversal, notch filter and the better sound control.

All in all - Recommended and with custom assembly even very good ..
Double bass: full-bodied approx. 60 years old, strings: Eudoxa, music style Jazz, Blues, RockaBilly,

Supplement after some use:
Processing and arrangement of the electronics is not so good. Had a wackelkontakt in the box of the sure from the vibrations on the bass came. And that during a gig, it made more and more krrrks, all the cables and even the amp exchanged to make at home then, it lies at the TA box and / or the Ministeckern.
Everything as far as it goes nach soldered but I do not trust the thing any longer.

Shadow SH 965 NFX-B - this system does s!
A. H. aus R., 11.12.2011
After I have already tried a few things with regard to double-bass acceptance - among other things, self-built piezo-PUs under the bridge wings - and, lastly, just to build my own piezofolien buyers, I discovered this pickup system. Na prima, the part was bought immediately at Thomann. Here my experiences:

Processing:
That makes a good impression. Only the setting controls for sound and volume have a bit "spillerig" ... The battery holder is nicely realized - a battery change is possible without disassembling the amplifier module.

Assembly:
This is very easy - just relax the strings, push the foil drivers under the bridge feet, and finally clamp the amplifier module between the bridge and the string holder on the A and D string. I needed about 15 minutes. However, the pickups are very smooth on the outside, so you have to make sure that the bridge does not slip during the first tuning after assembly. In addition, it should be ensured that the very long leads to the pickups are never loosely located anywhere else, otherwise it can come to "resonance puzzles" with certain tones. Possibly. you have to fix them with adhesive tape.

sound:
In order to be able to judge the sound, I went directly to the input of a recording device with the output signal and recorded some Pizzikato and Arco passages. When playing over Studiokopfhörer I was immediately "plumbed" - simply (almost) only double bass! The "clicking" of a string and the piezotypical "nasal side-line", which often occurs in piezotone pickups, are also present, but comparatively discreet. If the elevation is shown slightly, then both are hardly visible. To my taste, the reproduction of the E string is somewhat concise, without however undifferentiated "queasy" to come over.
According to my - of course subjective - opinion, the really very authentic reproduction of the instrumental connection in conjunction with a sound control probably provides a realization basis for every sound presentation. At this point I should mention that I have mounted the pickup system on a 4/4 bass with solid ceiling and Thomastik spirocore strings - the result may sound slightly different in other instruments with different strings.

Handling:
In the test on an amp, I immediately noticed the very low tendency to feedback - I had the bass positioned at a distance of 1m, the ceiling towards the amp and a proper room volume adjusted - with it, it had always whistled mighty. The output level of the amplifier module is comparable to that of a passive bass guitar, not very high. I guess times that the electronics here rather the function of an impedance converter perceives, it works almost noise-free. I can not make a statement about the battery life at this time.


Conclusion:
The SH 965 NFX-B pickup system from Shadow is easy to install without any modifications to the bridge, delivering a surprisingly authentic sound with few minor noises. In addition, the system is almost unrestrictedly stage-compatible.
