Some of you may have used the Emg double humbucker pickup called an ACB or something like that. With input from Ryan Cavanaugh and Chris Pandolfi and others they now have produced a barrel pickup more like the Jones / fishman /barcus Berry type, does anyone use one live and have experience with the Emg Barrel especially if blended with a clip on sure beta / stage mic or similar set up. I might buy one but have not seen any reviews as yet. Thanks and happy picking in 2020. Tim

I've moved your post to Live sound & electronics where I think it will get more reads by those who might be able to give you a review on it.

I'll bet it's very good.
I use the other style and couldn't be happier with it! (After using a LOT of others.)

Thanks Mike, you use the humbucker style one? Ilany feedback and how's the tone as compared to a Mike? Thanks. Tim

It sounds like a banjo, but louder. Not electric guitar-like at all. No feedback.
There is something they put on that circuit board that they have done perfectly.
It looks like it’s on the barrel type too.
I recommend it to everyone.
