You can use a box like the LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI which has a low frequency cutoff that can remove most thumps.

It is small and easy to carry.

Hi Whamdiddlers!
 
I have been using a K & K contact mic and it has been fine with our 'Passport' PA. We needed
a boost, so I added the K & K preamp.  Wow!  the sound is great but the hammer hit noise is
totally unacceptable.  I tried the contacts under the hd, and it was only slightly improved.
I disconnected the contact mics and went to a standard Shure SM instrument mic.  that was
great!  However, the sound is only part of the reason for the contact mic, the other
reason is so we don't have to lug around more equipment.  Any suggestions on how to make
that K & K work better without the hammer hit noise?  It's great otherwise.
 
Thank you so much!
