L.R. Baggs Violin Pickup with Carpenter Jack

Item# LRV100

$139.00

In Stock

The LR Baggs 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 resulting from natural string vibrations, reject feedback, eliminate scratchy nasal sounds, and trace the natural sound of the instrument without affecting its tone. 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. For larger violas, use item LRA100.

PICK-UPS and PRE-AMPS
Stepping into the amplified arena of music performance can be as easy as installing a pickup on your current instrument. A piezo transducer responds to pressure on the instrument's bridge (either in the wing slot, under the bridge feet, or from within the bridge itself). This makes piezo pickups the optimal choice for bowed string instruments.
The standard pickups offered by Kremona and Fishman attach to the wing slot of the instrument's bridge and usually require no alteration to the instrument. The Kremona Pickup is a budget piezo model with low output gain, but the piezo is encased in a small soft piece of wood that seems to take some of the edge off of bow "attack" noise. The Fishman V100 has more output gain and is popular with more professional players.
For the more active performer who is willing to invest in a more ambitious setup which will involve alteration of the instrument, the LR Baggs bridge pickup offers a design that has the piezo carved inside an Aubert #7 Mirecourt bridge. This provides more balance, greater output, and less attack noise, but the bridge requires installation by a qualified technician. Another professional pickup is the Realist pickup designed by David Gage in collaboration with NS Design. The Realist is a transducer in a vinyl sleeve and rests between the bridge feet and the violin top, which puts it exactly where the sound is transferred from the strings to the sound board. Its mounting hardware is extremely compact and with such a high output gain it requires no external preamp. Though installation is relatively easy and can be done by the customer, the transducer raises the bridge height by about 1 mm and some players may want to have their bridge height lowered by a qualified technician.
All piezo pickups require the use of a preamp to match the impedence of the pickup with the amplifier being used as well as to boost the pickup's signal. Features that tend to vary the most include the number of EQ controls and the existence of notch filters, compression, XLR outputs, and even 2-channel mixing capabilities and phantom power. Fishman preamps tend to have a smoother, more ambient sound while LR Baggs leans toward a tighter, more focused quality.
