I have a K&K pure mini passive mounted in my Huss & Dalton CM and I run it through a little K&K preamp, then into the mixer. All I need and the tone is killer. I have a Crate Gunnison amp that I used to use, but it's just collecting dust now. I have Martin D-28 with baggs active iBeam installed. Got that when they first came out and ran it through a Baggs ParaDI. While that box was intriguing and could get pretty good tones at low volume, it was much more difficult to get it dialed in when I played in louder situations. Overall, I just think the ParaDI is too complicated. It is a nice box with lots of possibilities, if you have the patience for it. Unfortunately, mine got fried one day. Completely my fault. I just mic the Martin now with an SM-81, because the iBeam just doesn't do it for me. The K&K spoiled me. One day I will have the Martin equipped with one.
