Violin / Viola - VR-2 Viola Pickup


Schatten Design is an innovative Canadian company that specialises in original handmade acoustic pickups.  The company has a tailored pickup solution for acoustic and classical guitar, banjo, resonator, mandolin, violin, piano, bouzouki, folk instruments and everything in between. Schatten pickups are used by performers, luthiers, and manufacturers all around the world. Simple design, great sounding pickups, non-invasive and easy to install. Available in Active and Passive formats. 

 

The V-02 offers unparalleled reproduction, range and clarity of sound all wrapped up in a high quality medium density bridge. There is no false 'fatness' of sound to this series of pickups; they will give you everything that your violin has to offer. All V-02 models are in 4/4 size and fit a normal full sized adult violin.

The pickup delivers excellent volume and the tonal response is sweet from the bottom end, through the mids right up to the top. The V-02 comes with a high quality, medium density, maple (from Canada where else?) bridge ready for fitting and curvature. The single piezo sensing unit is built right into the bridge, it can not fall out or get out of position or adjustment. There is no acoustic degradation or loss of normal acoustic tone or volume.

Available in three models: Std. / Pro. / NT

VR-02 Std
With the SJA non-invasive low profile 1/4" output jack assembly.

VR-02 Pro
With an SJAplus non-invasive low profile 1/4" output jack assembly with volume control.

VR-02 NT
Non terminated option with no output jack assembly.

The pickup has been designed to sound terrific without the use of a preamp when plugged into any 'normal' amp (guitar amp, bass amp, etc.). As with any pickup, the sound can be further enhanced with an outboard preamp. If you require the added ability to be able to plug directly into a P.A. or mixer then you may wish to add either one of the Mini Pre belt clipable preamps
