The Schatten CV Slide-on-Bridge Violin Pickup captures the true sound of your violin, providing a sweet and natural amplified sound without harshness or coloration. The position of the CV pickup sensor on the bridge provides excellent string clarity and definition.
The Schatten CV Violin Pickup slides easily onto your existing violin bridge without any modifications to your instrument. Installation takes just a few seconds, and it is just as easy to remove. The attached 10 foot cable has a standard 1/4" male connector that can be plugged directly into your amplifier.
Schatten has designed their CV series pickups to operate properly and sound terrific without the use of a preamp if you are running into any 'normal' amp (guitar amp, bass amp, etc. Players who must plug directly into a mixing board may need a preamp to to match up with what most mixers require in terms of impedance and signal strength. We recommend the Schatten Mini-Pre if you need a preamp for this pickup.
Each CV pickup is hand built and tested in the Schatten workshop to ensure good sound. As well, each pickup is warranted for a period of two years from date of purchase.
