The Realist Copperhead Pickups are by David Gage & NS Design. The Copperhead rests between the bridge feet and the instrument top, which puts it exactly where the sound is transferred from the strings to the sound board. The result is rich, powerful response, both pizzicato and bowed. Its mounting hardware is extremely compact and with such a high output gain it requires no external preamp. The copper foil sandwich construction provides total shielding to eliminate hum from light fixtures and other electrical or radio interference.

SHAR Plug 'n Play Amplifier These portable amps are perfect for practicing in the home or studio at low volumes. The 10-watt Violin/Viola amp features a 5" speaker, volume, bass, and treble controls, an overdrive switch, input jack, and headphone jack. The all new 30-watt cello-bass amp has a 10" speaker, volume, bass, middle, mid-frequency, and treble controls, high and low input jack, and headphone jack. Which Amp? Bowed string instruments have such a wide range of frequencies and dynamics that we recommend an "acoustic" instrument amplifier for live performances. Violins and violas enjoy the best results with amps that have a tweeter to accommodate the higher frequencies, while cellos and basses should use bass amplifiers.
Easy to install on any stringed instrument, including violin, viola, cello, bass, mandolin and even guitar! Just thread the pickup under the lowest and highest strings, right below the bridge. Simply plug into your amp with the 11.5 foot cable and start playing. Can be quickly removed to use on another instrument or when you don't want it in the way for pure acoustic performance.
