Thread Name: Best pickup for a fiddle?
Subject: RE: Best pickup for a fiddle?
I've tried loads; mostly the stick-on type and tried to put them everywhere in a vain attempt to get a sound that I liked - on the bridge, next to a f hole, on Mick McGarry's head etc. But I was never happy. In the end I invested in a Fishman V 200. The extra £30 for the gizmo that clamps the lead socket onto the violin was well worth it. I also bought a Fishman Pro EQII pre amp, to give that extra bit of control. All in all over £240, but I have had no regrets. Hope that helps.
