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 Superior Despiau "Two Tree" 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 favorite violin. 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.

Allison Krauss
"I've been using a Baggs pickup recently and can't believe how nice it sounds. I've had people come up to me after shows wondering how I like my fiddle. That's encouraging because they don't even know I'm using a pickup."
Darol Anger
"The Baggs bridge is the best thing to put on your acoustic fiddle."
Levi Dennis
w/ Gary Allan
"I have played nearly all the violin pickups on the market, searching for a pickup that is true to the natural acoustic 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."

Best results from the Violin Pickup will be achieved by using a high-quality, high-impedance preamp with lots of clean gain, such as our Para D.I. or Gigpro. Please see "What it Works With" for more details.
Our standard violin pickup package comes with a carpenter jack; we also sell a non-terminated version if you already have a chin rest or other jack that you prefer to use.
We strongly recommend using the Violin Pickup with a high-quality outboard preamp. It will work with any of our external preamps, including the Para D.I., Feedback Master, Mixpro or Gigpro.
