The Fishman V-200 Classic Series Professional Violin Pickup (PRO-V20-OVI) is a low noise piezo ceramic pickup that allows violinists to connect the output of their violin to an amplifier.
Fishman have gained a worthy reputation for manufacturing high-quality hardware that is dedicated to making a musician's working life much easier. Through innovative solutions to everyday problems, Fishman has a huge range of products that cater to a huge range of applications, ensuring that there is definitely something for you. The V-200 uses the same pickup element as the popular V-100, employing a Carpenter-style 1/4" output jack, which mounts on the side of the violin with chinrest-style hardware. The lightweight nature of the hardware is designed to minimise muting, allowing the violin to play as naturally as possible. The piezo crystal passive pickup captures the timbre of the tonewoods, as well as the resonance of the strings to create a lushly textured, complete sonic image of the violin.
Thanks to the unique design of the pickup, you can very simply plug in your violin to an amp, and amplify your sound with ease. Not only does this make it much easier for live performers during gigs, but it also means that recordings can be captured with greater consistency, and without the need to incorporate expensive condenser microphones. For greater power, it is recommended that an impedance matching preamp be fitted to your violin, to give the signal the boost it deserves. As with all products, it is recommended that you have your pickup installed by a professional.
The Fishman V-200 Classic Series Professional Violin Pickup (PRO-V20-OVI) is a fantastic piece of kit that enables your violin to be plugged in directly to a PA or audio interface, whilst producing a true representation of your violin.
