Element Active VTC - Alavarez SLM Metal saddle slot
Hey all, I am new to this forum, and hoping to gain some insight.
I have a late 70s model Alvarez SLM acoustic, and am wanting to amp it. Currently, I am using the M1A, and it works very well. I have been wanting to install a piezo, for two reasons 1) to remove the visible pickup from the sound hole, and 2) to possibly remove chances for feedback...EDIT: I don't get feedback with the M1A, unless I am attempting to overdrive or add effects. However, I am looking to use a soundhole plug or cover, which would preclude my ability to use a soundhole pickup.
The SLM has a metal saddle slot. Do I drill through this metal slot as well at the bridge to install the transducer, and will the pickup even work when installed on a metel saddle slot?
I hope these questions make sense.
Thanks for any insight!
