I'll be taking my Uke in to the luthier for a tune-up sometime soon, and seeing that my favorite audio company is now making a nice little practice amp, I thought that it might be fun to try with the uke. So I'm curious, what's the best setup for this combination -- an internal condenser mic (would then require phantom power), or a saddle transducer? Also, am I better off getti g a volume control mounted in the uke or in this case where the uke is not set up for amplification already, would it be better to modify the Tode with a volume control?
My vague recollection of the 3-3 circuit as that the volume control was between stages -- is that correct, and if not, how best to add a volume control? Also, will I need any preamplification for the transducer?
Obviously I'm a little out of date on this stuff so any advice on how to proceed would be appreciated.
