GotaUkelele.Com: "iRig Acoustic Stage gets a recommendation from me!"

"I like this little thing a lot"


"It really does work, and provides a surprisingly clear and faithful tone. Throw in the feedback control and the ability to hook it up to your computer and it really shows its versatility."


GotaUkelele.Com are dedicated to the ever-growing community of ukelele players. This diminutive size and portable instrument has a huge worldwide following. Editor Baz was particularly excited to test out iRig Acoustic Stage with his collection of ukeleles.
Here are some of his key comments:

"The microphone itself is very small which is great as it really isn't very intrusive at all when playing."

"It weighs next to nothing, so you should have no worries about something heavy on the body of your ukelele."

"This microphone is not a piezo, so if it is faithful to the tone as promised, there shouldn't be much need for EQ tweaks like there usually is on a piezo."

"The feedback section is the really interesting one for me ... very nifty and extremely handy for stage use (which I suspect is why it's called the iRig Acoustic 'Stage'!)."

"If your ukelele already has a piezo pickup you can hook your regular pickup output into this and then blend your piezo signal with the microphone signal using the 'Mix' dial. That's a really clever feature."

"I would say right now that I think that is a superb price when you consider you are getting a microphone, a pre-amp and a digital interface in one box."

"I would suspect that if you played to someone blindfold, that most would not be able to tell you were not playing into a regular microphone."

"The feedback button is remarkably good."

Baz's final verdict is:

"It really does work, and provides a surprisingly clear and faithful tone. Throw in the feedback control and the ability to hook it up to your computer and it really shows its versatility."
