I've used shatten for years and added the mini mic to the standard system about a year ago. With the blender you can get excellent acoustic tone. I also EQ the signal to dial on the frequencies I want and dodge the ones I don't. The only issue with any pickup system that employs a condenser is feedback. They all have the microphones effect when you get too close to the monitors, amp, etc.
I happen to have a spare system I just took out of one of my banjos. Send me a message if you are interested. I'm a shatten dealer and I ca give you a great deal in this, especially since it's gently used. This one only has about 20 hours of play time on it I'm guessing,
