  • Baggs Radius placement on mandolin

    Where exactly have you found with placement on the mandolin for the best results? Thanks.

    My favorite starting point is with the pickup parallel to the bridge, towards the treble side, about 1/4" to 1/2" away from the bridge (see diagram). From there I will move the pickup around until I find the best sounding position.

    Every instrument is different though, and will need a different pickup placement.

      I've got some low end resonance that I would like to ease some. See image on current placement.

        Would moving more to treble fhole help? I'm also using the putty.

          If you're getting a boomy low-end, then moving the pickup towards the F-hole can help with some instruments. I usually move the pickup from the bass side towards the treble side to get an idea of what I'm dealing with. Then I place the pickup accordingly.

              Would this placement be better instead of the above?

                It's almost impossible to say what will work better by looking at it. You can really only try a few options and see what works best for that instrument.

                I've found that having the pickup parallel to the bridge provides a more even tone on most instruments, but that isn't always the case.
