Natural sounding violin pickup
Philippe599 04.06.2013
If you're after a natural sound and need some feedback resistance, these are great violin pickups. Pair it with an L.R.Baggs para-acoustic D.I. and you have an excellent system which will give you a natural sound, and no feedback problems! Remember to roll off some lows to reduce handling noise, 2k to remove the nasal quality and some treble if it sounds too scratchy. If you wan't something more permanent on the violin I'd recommend the baggs bridge pickups, and for those of you playing in a quieter ensemble (no drums) then the DPA mics do sound lovely.

Electric fiddle!

I bought this Fishman V-200 pickup to electrify my girlfriend! (Well her violin anyway)

I decided to buy the V-200 over the V-100 as I felt this had a more solid jack connector. The installation was quite straightforward , all I had to do make the gap on the violin bridge a little wider with a piece of folded up sand paper, insert the pickup 'blade' and attach the jack plug mount. No tape or glue to worry about leaving any residue or removing any finish on your expensive violin.

Sound wise, the Fishman actually performs really well. It needs a little bit of outboard EQ or a pre-amp, as it can be a little bit harsh in the 2 to 3 kHz region, and a wee bit of cut here, in conjunction with a hi pass filter to reduce handling noise can make all the difference. Add some reverb and maybe some delay and it sounds great.

Obviously the Fishman can't and won't out perform a nice mic setup, but where feedback from on stage monitors is an issue, or you need to be heard over a rock band these perform admirably.

The only slight negative is the hard wired connection at the jack end, it might have been nicer to see a separate, removable, heavier duty cable here as it feels little flimsy. However once installed, this shouldn't be a huge worry.

One of the best pick ups i ve tried for violin! easy to use and the design helps a lot! I use it with a lamp pre-amp in order to get a "larger" sound and boost the lower frequencies!

Great pickup, some adjustments needed

Great sound from this pickup, however you need a preamp or boss pedal as impedance is high! Also you may have to make adjustments to your bridge with sandpaper in order to mount the piezio.
