I use a L. R. Baggs Para Acoustic DI-Preamp and a L R. Baggs Element with my Ko'olau CS Tenor. Very inerested in their new Venue with all the features of the Para Acoustic Preamp-DI and a built-in chromatic tuner and boost switch.
A few manufactures have pickups installed on their productions models. Most custom builder's have a preference for the system to use on their ukulele but can install whatever system you would like.
The preamp & pickup system on my Ko'olau is passive, I use a L. R. Baggs Para Acoustic Preamp.
For an amplifier I use a custom Reazer's Edge cabinet and Acoustic Image Clarus amplifier head - which for sale and to be replaced with a Quilter Micro 200 *" and extension speaker cabinet.
Roland Micro Seres of Battery powered amps are a great choice for portable amplification.. I have a Micro Cube which is really great for small settings. Gerald Ross uses a selection of the Roland Micro Series of amps as a main part of of performance setup.
This is an amazing amplifier and really versatile.

( from listing's site ) - The days of lugging around big, heavy amps are over! The MicroPro's light and efficient design and high-power single speaker slashes size and weight but the sound is anything but small. When it's time to crank it up, the MicroPro 200 will stand and deliver with a punchy, full sound that can hold its own against anything else on stage.
Our unique tone comes from of years of collecting and studying the best guitar amps. Advanced class D switchmode power technology behaves like a tube amp, delivers all the warmth and feel of classic amps along with amazing power output and reliability.
With an extremely wide frequency response and low noise floor, the MicroPro 200 projects the sound of your guitar like you've never heard it before.

Rich, deep, stereo sound to go — introducing the AC-33, the world’s first AA battery-powered amp made specifically for acoustic guitar. Portable yet powerful, the AC-33 provides true stereo sound, Guitar and Mic/Line channels, custom-tailored effects, anti-feedback, and a Phrase Looper. But this amp was made to go places no amp has gone before. Thanks to its battery-power capability, the AC-33 lets you take your act anywhere — into the backwoods, onto the streets, or wherever your imagination leads you.

Most non-musicians are likely unaware that the past fifty years of guitar amplifier technology has had a more significant impact on the history of rock music than the electric guitar itself. Each individual amp and effect design was created to distort and color the guitar signal in a different way, contributing significantly to why the guitar sounds of the Beatles were so different from Jimi Hendrix or Pink Floyd. Both the subtle and overt differences between the many types (and even specific serial numbers) of amps and effects, became cherished tonal signatures that were sought after for the particular sonic mood that they might inspire.
Fishman Aura - Fishman Aura Acoustic Blender Aura isn’t a pickup, yet it picks up where pickups leave off. Aura is not a microphone, yet it makes you sound like you’re playing into a great mic in a great room. And Aura is not modeling. It is Acoustic Sound Imaging™—a quantum leap for acoustic amplification—and only Fishman has it.
Designed for the singer/songwriter, SoloAmp provides exceptional sound quality and coverage in a wide variety of venues. 220Watts of clean, lightweight power drives a line array of six custom high-excursion speakers and a soft dome tweeter. This unique combination delivers incredibly full sound, ultra-wide dispersion, and deeper sonic penetration than the common speaker cabinet. Better yet, the enhanced bass response of the custom-designed speakers means there's no need for a subwoofer!
( from listing's site ) - For over 25 years, the Fishman name has been synonymous with technical innovation in acoustic amplification. Fishman pickups and preamps, toneshaping products and amplifiers are the essential tools acoustic musicians, performers and sound technicians rely on to accurately amplify the natural tones of acoustic instruments.
