The Wilson Pickup System for violin and viola has quite a few assets to offer:

  • It gives a realistic, perfect, acoustic sound.
  • It allows volume adjusting of bright and deep strings by simply rotating the pickup in its mount.
  • It is accurate and completely linear in all registers.
  • It has the same effect when played by pizz and arco.
  • It is connected directly to an amplifier. No pre-amp needed.
  • It is easily built into the bridge as an active part of the violin itself.
  • It’s position in the bridge is mixing a perfect balance between the output from your strings. A feature not covered by any competitor.
  • It has a frequency response of 150 Hz to 30 kHz – and even beyond.

The craftmanship of Wilson Pickups is uncompromised. Each pickup is handmade in Denmark and thoroughly tested for mechanical tolerance, insulating resistance and frequency response.
