L.R. Baggs violin bridge
L.R. Baggs is one of the best-known names in the business; numerous professional players use their piezo bridges to amplify their acoustic violins. The piezoelectric pickup is imbedded in the wood of the bridge. This version comes unterminated, allowing attachment to the output jack of your choice.
As an integral part of the bridge, the LR Baggs pickup 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.
