Some time back i posted, showing pickup parts that I bought on eBay for around $12.
Well yesterday I decided to put it all together.
I found a piece of wood. cut it to length, hollowed it, drilled some holes, and gave it a coat of stain.
I then put the pickup parts into said piece of wood and clamped it to my violin
The pickup is a thin piece of plastic 'under' the bridge.
I've posted the picks and a rather bad vid. The violin that I used is one that I've not used much and the bridge is not what I'm used to. And my broken ribs didn't. help none
BTW... The shape is that of a prototype. Will do the next one to fit nicer
Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of ..... What was I saying????
Nice job! Looks nicer than store-bought, and sounds pretty darn good!
