The Radius mandolin pickup is a hi tech contact sensor that was designed to emulate the sound of a mic without the instability associated with microphones. The pickup installs easily to the instrument with mounting putty that is non destructive to its finish. Inside of the pickup's housing is a highly flexible film sensor that responds much like a mic diaphragm. The sensor is held in equilibrium and damped by opposing neodymium magnets that allow the pickup to respond to the instruments most subtle nuances.

I have been waiting to get a pickup on this mandolin for a long time but contemplated between the K&K system, The Schertler Basik and this pickup. I already own LR Baggs Anthem Pickups and have them in two of my guitars and LOVE them! As well, I have an LR Baggs IBeam I installed in my Baby Taylor Guitar and LOVE it! I figured that since I have had good luck with LR Baggs that this was indeed worth a try and I was right..
Granted.. I am going to say that some people have said "Too much Body/handling noise". I will say that their is body noise but as an acoustic musician, I personally like the "Body/Handling Noise". I feel that soundboard transducers give an accurate representation of acoustic instruments because of this.. The only thing I like better is the Anthem system that gives you the best of both worlds with the string response of a Piezo Element and the Body Tone of the phase corrected microphone inside but their is no such "Ready made" system for mandolin so I will settle for this guy.. For what I do, it truly is "Just fine"..
Don't get me wrong, If I had the money, I would have purchased the Schertler Dyn-M pickup but it seems quite silly to buy a pickup that costs almost as much as my mandolin. If you have an awesome mandolin, you may want to invest in something like that but for my little Loar LM-520 and my bar/club gigging, this thing is perfect..
If I were to record, I would just use a microphone..
