Using a Pickup & lavalier Microphone at the Same time? How?


A performer I really enjoy uses a biggs pickup, and a audiotechnica lavalier microphone. I am interested in doing it with my acoustic. My acoustic came with a pickup already built into it.

How do you plug the lavalier microphone into my already existing pickups system? I'd like to avoid drilling if there is any way possible.

I know that he uses a stereo guitar cable, and keeps their sounds seperate.


I have some AT Pro 70 mics (that I use for video production) but they work well as instrument mics too. They come with a clip that mounts onto the guitar soundhole.

You don't run it into the on-board pickup system...but run it into a mixer or the second channel in an amp that has XLR connectors....
