Just some advise:
- Make sure they use deoxygenated holy-water, poured away from the 
exchange. I hear that's best for signal purity.
- Do you have all your strings braided and tied with silk coated 
- If there's any fraying, you'll loose at least 1-2 dB (deciBytes)/metre 
to signal delays & crosstalk between the strands.
- You must place the transducer on a solid foundation, preferably 
concrete poured to a depth of 3 metres. Carpet will just make the signal 
too woolly, parquet will leave it sounding wooden.
- Finally consider the transducer, it must not be dented. Make sure it's 
been opened with a freshly sharpened tin opener, ring pulls stress the 
side and distort the signal. Don't skimp on a no-name knock-off, there's 
only one manufacturer worth spending time on: Heinz.
