    I traded my Underwood for a Revoluton Solo 3 years ago. Nothing wrong with the Underwood, but the Revolution made a huge change in my amplified tone.

    1950’s factory German DB -> Thomastik Dominant strings -> Rev. Solo pickup -> Acoustic Image Contra Series Ia amplifier. I mainly play jazz, blues, and latin on my DB so I wanted a really punchy, dark sound.

    Sounds great through the whole range, really “softens” thumb position which can with certain pickups get kind of “plinky” if you know what I mean. Also sounds very nice for arco, although I suppose most performing classical players would be mic’d.
