So I am exploring what kinds of pickups to use. All violin pickups are currently piezo based. As in a crystal that takes vibrations and turns them in to sound (same goes for microphones but using the air as a medium).
I can only see people on the internet using magmatic based pickups in the early 2000’s and then its abandoned, probably because piezo gives a sound similar to acoustic violins.
However a magnetic pickup gives a different sound, a bit like a guitar, so here are a few tests. I took 3 humbucker pickups.
I didn’t electric shield anything like you should so apologies for the buzz. The sound was recorded out of a Behringer V amp, so what you are hearing in the video is the pickup, no microphone.
Strings are Coated steel core, nickel chromium wound, E string is stainless steal core.
Would value feedback and ideas what to do next
