The K&K Sound Violinissimo is a high output three sensor pickup system for violin and viola that includes a tailpiece-mounted RCA jack.
The K&K Violinissimo system includes three high-output pickup sensors. The two larger sensors are wedged between the violin's top and each bridge foot. The third smaller sensor is stuck into one wing slot of the bridge. The Violinissimo has been designed for musicians who wish to achieve an extraordinarily natural, acoustic sound without feedback.
The sensors positioned underneath the bridge's feet produce an extremely full and smooth sound because the bridge applies vertical pressure to the piezo elements. This allows the low frequencies and the complex sound elements of the violin's body to be picked up. The pickup sensor in the bridge's wingslot adds brilliance and clarity to the sound. All three sensors together transmit a perfectly balanced violin sound.
The lightweight and compact RCA jack is attached to the string holder with a self-closing industrial strength "dual-lock" fastener, which is distinctively stronger, more durable, and sturdier than standard hook-and-loop fasteners. It can be opened and closed repeatedly without wearing out.
This high output pickup system can drive most amplifiers directly, without the need for a preamp. If you are plugging into a PA system or mixer board, you may require a preamp to increase the signal strength to match that system. We recommend the K&K Pure Preamp or the K&K Pure XLR Preamp, both of which are perfectly matched to the K&K pickups.
Note: This model requires a 1/4" male to RCA male cable (not included) to plug into your amplifier. If you need a standard 1/4" connection, consider the Violinissimo Pro model instead of this one.
