I'm going to connect one of those pickups to my clarinet barrel and possibly bass clarinet neck too. I narrowed it down to a few options and I know it's pretty unlikely, but any chance anyone compared more than one type?
Just about all samples are of Turkish style players and although getting a natrual clarinet tone is not at all the reason I'm getting this, I prefer to judge quality this way. With a Turkish clarinet tone it's hard to say what's the player/setup and what's the pickup.
The options are Pasoana http://pasoana.com/ which sounds pretty much ok in their samples.
TAP http://www.tap.com.gr/index.php?opti...mid=31&lang=en which some of their samples sound ok too (TC-R and NANO-R are main options).
PT100PV http://gtc-music1.com/store/index.ph...products_id=47 which I've heard both ok and terrible sound samples.
When I asked on another forum I got tons of replies not to use this and instead use a microphone or a clip on mic. So maybe best to mention that I already use dynamic and/or condenser microphones sometimes. I also have AMT microphones, both the single one and the double one specific to clarinet, which I use sometimes too. I've tried other clip on mics from Shure, AKG. None of these options is good enough for what I need the barrel pickup for.
