decent sound but a little in the way

By 

from Rockland, NY

Comments about Seymour Duncan Woody XL Adjustable Pole Pieces Soundhole Pickup:

I was looking at different sound hole options for my Martin and decide to try the XL based on some reviews I saw on line. What I like: The sound is pretty decent especially after adjusting each pole. What I don't like: It's not easy to install. It's a very tight fit and the edges are a little sharp. Sharp enough that I can see my sweet Martin getting damaged while installing or removing the device. I have tried other brands that were easier to install yet sounded worse. The wire hanging below the hole is not a problem for me but the height of the pick-up (being very close to the strings) is a bit of a problem and impedes my playing style. I can see this working pretty well for a pick-strummer but it's in the way for a finger picker. So, if you're a pick strummer, this is the pick=up for you but if you finger pick... the tips of your fingers will be tapping this pickup constantly. The noise level is pretty low but I found that there is a bit of a low level hum. I tried it using three amps and three power sources and the low level hum is pretty consistent.

Good Pickup

By 

from Oregon

Comments about Seymour Duncan Woody XL Adjustable Pole Pieces Soundhole Pickup:

The Woody XL is a significant improvement over my very old sound hole pickup. It has been dependable but needed major parametric EQ to rein in its exaggerated midrange, and to boost the amount of "air" in the high frequency range. The Woody intrinsically sounds much more natural, requiring much less EQ. I have two minor criticisms: 1) The mounting system works by pressure fit in the sound hole against stiff foam rubber. It's not as secure as the Lawrence system that held the pickup in place with spring steel. 2) The output cable is thick enough that it gets in my way, a bit. I've taped it to the pick guard on my Gibson flat top, and that mostly solves the problem. (Of course, the cable's thick because it's a good quality cable!) Overall, I'm quite happy with the unit. The adjustable pole pieces are a big plus. (I've already used the included Allen wrench to tame the output on my "B" string, a bit.) The unit is well constructed, and even includes an alternate pole piece for players using a solid "G" string. Very thoughtful of Seymour Duncan!
