Am I allowed? Please help me!


Recommended Posts

I've used both magnetic and piezo type pickups on acoustic guitars through several types of tube amps and, frankly, I like the sound better than through my "acoustic" amp.


The acoustic amps seem to carry the highs a little better, but since I use light strings, I kinda like a little more bass and middle. A regular amp does that pretty well.


But no way will it hurt the guitar that's I've ever heard of, and I started using an a-e back in the mid '70s.


Heck, in those days there was no such thing as an a-e amp. You used a regular amp or a PA mike. The piezo type pickups where just kinda coming in. A lot of otherwise "acoustic" guitars did come fitted with magnetic pickups of various sorts in a transitional phase.
