It’s great. My ‘ukulele seems like a new instrument when I plug in. The sound is more full and presentable. With the old pickup I would still not be happy with the sound even when I could doctor it all up with preamps and EQ. Now I can just plug in and go.
Here is the old K&K Big Spot passive pickup straight into the computer’s line in:
To be fair, here is the same pickup ran through a Fishman Pro-EQ Platinum preamp:
Here is the new MISI Acoustic Trio straight in:
Not the perfect comparison since my playing style/ability and arrangement has changed, but it’s night and day enough to give you a good idea what each sounds like. You can hear a little bit of the pluck with the MISI and it sounds a bit “plugged in” for this clip, but as soon as you run it through an acoustic amp that all goes away.
Here it is in a video demo through my Roland AC-90 amp:
