The Fishman V-100 Classic Series Violin/Viola pickup mounts in the wing slot of the violin bridge with Fishman's patented Floating Mount system. The V-100 is very lightweight to minimize muting. It includes a 1/8" mini-plug jack which mounts to the tailpiece. A 10 foot 1/8" to 1/4" cable is included. An impedance matching preamp is recommended, but not required.
