"The lute is a gentle instrument, both in terms of the sound and the way it is built. The Myers 'Feather' Lute Pickup attaches itself gently to the instrument without much pressure on the soundboard. This allows the soundboard to vibrate naturally, which in turn results in the full, natural projection of sound. Anyone who plays the lute will know that even the slightest change in the position of the microphone will result in a dramatic change in the character of sound. The Feather lute microphone always stays in the same position, which allows me to move freely as the expression of the music requires. This is particularly useful in the music therapy environment, where the musician often has to move to approach individual patients. Needless to say, the sound quality of the Feather lute pickup is excellent, retaining both the highs and the lows, as well as the natural ambiance of the instrument. This resembles the sound of the best condenser microphones. I would highly recommend this pickup for any lute player or any music therapist."
