After receiving my Kala UBASS I had inquired about the pickup, not the SHADOW which was listed in the specs for the product I had ordered. I wondered if I had gotten an older model. This was about the same time as COVID shutdowns began, so the old info on the website is understandable. My Exotic Mahog UBASS arrived without delay though.
Looking back at past youtube tutorial videos proves it. The Fishman IS the upgraded pickup, (No wonder, because it sounds incredible plugged in).
There is some buzzing on the G string on mine, but Im glad to visit my local luthier to have them chisel the bridge or whatever it needs. Its less noticeable as Im breaking it in. Looks and sounds great otherwise. Stands up to full size in sound. I dont need a big boomer for my mandolin band. 5 stars for a high quality instrument at a reasonable price. Feel free to close my ticket, just a misunderstanding!
PS: I use a Fishman bridge pickup on my mandolin, so all in the family.
