Fishman Blackstack guitar pickup?

Howdy, acoustic guitar players...
got a favorite pick-up system?
I'm considering getting one installed in my Alvarez 12-fret.
The sound hole is a smaller diameter on this guitar than your standard dreadnought.
So far, the Fishman Blackstack reviews have impressed me most.
What say you?

Hi Peter,

Ive got 2 dreadnought cutaways with fisherman prefix blender pickups installed.
I don't think I'll ever buy another acoustic with a chunk cut out to house a pick up. [Not that that is what you are doing].

I took a photo of Molly Tuttle's preamp in Melbourne Australia recently at an Americana concert.

She uses an Audio Sprockets ToneDexter preamp and a K and K piezo. [ I googled her pick up after seeing your post.]

The Kand K's aren't that expensive and the ToneDexter looks like a pretty flexible bit of gear. $400 at Sweetwater.

Could be worth a look...
