Has anybody out there fitted or had fit a Skyinbow PA1 electric pick up to your violin or viola. What do you think of it in comparison to other pick ups you may have tried. What is the quality of the sound it reproduces in comparison to playing either a violin or viola accoustically. I would be interested to hear your comments.

Well, Mairead Nesbitt used them (even sponsored by them), However, at present, she is not using one of their violins, though she did in the past, with Cora Smith.

Two in our band (Fradenr Gamla) have been using them for several months now and are really pleased with the sound and not having to mess with mic stands etc. Well worth fitting though it might be a good idea to fit the pjck-up to another bridge if you only have the one fiddle.

strad, not to sure what you mean by fiiting the pick up to another bridge if you only have one fiddle. Surely if you only have one fiddle you would fit it to the bridge on that fiddle or am I missing something.

"am I missing something"

Swap brides when needed - while not familiar with the gadget, but once fitted to a bridge, it may not be easy to remove, or may cause damage with constant putting on and off the one on the violin.
