Violinissimo Pro




Violinissimo Pro


The Violinissimo is our signature pickup for violins and viola. It has three pickup heads; two bigger pickup heads are wedged between the violin and each bridge foot and the third, smaller pickup head is wedged into one wingslot of the bridge.

The position underneath the bridge feet produces an extremely voluminous and smooth sound because the bridge applies vertical pressure to the piezo crystals. In this spot, the low frequencies and the unique sound characteristics of the violin's corpus are picked up. The pickup in the bridge wingslot adds to the sound's brilliance. Together, the three pickup heads transmit a perfectly balanced violin sound. Other violin pickups tend to over-emphasize the high-end frequencies, but the Violinissimo eliminates this problem from the get-go.

The Violinissimo Pro with a 1/4" carpenter jack that clamps onto the bottom/side of the instrument. Please note this carpenter jack is too small for violas. We can substitute a larger clamp for violas on special request.
