Our violin pickup features a miniature vibration transducer cast
right into the bridge. The transducer is designed to accept the
tone-rich left/right movement of the bridge, reject feedback, eliminate
scratchy nasal sounds, and trace the natural sound of the instrument.
The L.R. Baggs Violin Pickup has set the standard since its inception
over a decade ago, and it is the top choice of more top pros --
including Alison Krauss, Michael Doucet, Darol Anger, Jean-Luc
Ponty -- than any other pickup.
The pickup is a miniature vibration transducer cast directly into
an Aubert #7 Mirecourt maple bridge for maximum sensitivity and
signal transfer. As an integral part of the bridge, it effortlessly
captures the instrument's inherent dynamics. Furthermore, it's
selective admittance pattern is aligned so that the signal is generated
as the bridge moves in a left-right motion (in response to the
string vibrations). The transducer also rejects any impulse directed
to the plane of the bridge, minimizing annoying finger squeaks,
body noise and feedback.
The L.R. Baggs Violin Pickup also features unprecedentedly
consistent performance, and will not affect the tone of your
By comparison, "stuck on" or "wedged in" pickups
mute the instrument's natural acoustic sound and do not provide
consistent results. Our violin pickup is handmade with pride, using
the finest quality materials and proven technology. Each pickup
is quality tested and carries a one year warranty.

|"I have played nearly all the violin
pickups on the market, searching for a pickup that is true to the
tone of the violin. Well, my search was called off when I discovered
the Violin Bridge Pickup made my L.R. Baggs. I instantly fell in
love! I am confident there is not a better pickup being made for
violins. The L.R. Baggs Violin Pickup is now the standard that all
violin pickups will be measured against."
