I would recommend this pick up

Comments about Kremona NG-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Nylon String Guitar:

I play in a praise band at church. Occasionally I need to play the classical which needed to be Micked. This was difficult at best. Now I can plug into the DI box and am free to move without loosing amplification. Sound is great and was simple to install. Only had it a short time but love so far..

Electrified my classical guitar

By Kevin

Comments about Kremona NG-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Nylon String Guitar:

Easy to install, sound is pretty good. The thing is a little fragile and you must take care when taking your guitar in and out of it's case (particularly a soft gig bag).

This is a really easy, straight-forward and relatively inexpensive way to electrify your classical guitar. The trade-off for these is that the sound is a little thin/buzzy.

For my purposes though, to record my practices to video for my instructor to see/hear, this was the best way for me to go for now.

      No support where you plug in . If not careful could snap and break.

      I would also like to know if it works on steel string guitar.

          The only practical yet good option for classical guitar amplification

          By Senmiao Zhou

          from New Haven, CT

          Comments about Kremona NG-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Nylon String Guitar:

          The Kremona pickup is absolutely wonderful. I used the dean markley piezo for a couple of years and the sound is inconsistent depending on how well the putty is sticking to the guitar. The putty on the soundboard also deadens the sound of the guitar. If you are a serious gigging classical guitarist and own a nice guitar, why would you stick disgusting putty on your guitar anyways? It does leave a mark, no matter what dean markley claims. The kremona pickup on the other hand becomes a beautiful part of your guitar once installed, it does not affect the acoustic sound of your guitar therefore you can just leave it on the guitar forever. When you need it simply plug it in! The tone is also very impressive. I've played it through recording mixers, PA's, acoustic amps and electric guitar amps, and it works marvelously. The pickup itself is very true to sound, so most of your control comes from what you plug it into, which is great because it's very flexible and will sound like your guitar as is, if thats what you are looking for. Many students and even teachers at my previous schools are using this pickup, San Francisco Conservatory of music and Yale School of Music Highly recommended!!
