House of Musical Traditions is known for being a home for acoustic instruments. But we also Love making those instruments a bit louder. LR Baggs is a pretty marvelous way to do it. Generally all pickups require professional installation - for more information about pickup installs checkout services available from our luthiers.
Our Violin Pickup is a miniature vibration sensor cast directly into a Superieur Despiau “Two Tree” maple bridge for maximum sensitivity and signal transfer. As an integral part of the bridge, it effortlessly captures the instrument’s inherent dynamics. Furthermore, its selective admittance pattern is aligned so that the signal is generated as the bridge moves in a left-right motion (in response to the string vibrations). The pickup also rejects any impulse directed to the plane of the bridge- minimizing annoying finger squeaks, body noise and feedback. It is the pickup of choice for top pros like Mark O’Connor, Darol Anger, Jean-Luc Ponty and Sara Watkins. An external preamp is recommended..
