At last I’ve found a really good ‘reto fit’ pick-up to amplify any acoustic violin.

Made by Skyinbow, it is the answer to your pick-up dreams. It does not affect the acoustics of the violin; is easily and quickly fitted with minimal interference to the violin; is transferable should you decide to change your instrument; does not feed back; is neat and tidy and makes a very good sound to boot ! Too good to be true ?? No, for once it’s a reality.

Buy one today for £219 and I’ll fit it for free.

Sorry these pickups are currently unavailable

 What you get is an ebony chinrest with sensor, built in pre-amp, capacitor, jack-socket and charging jack plug.

When it is fitted to your fiddle the sensor tucks neatly into a small, flat ended hole drilled in [but not through] the foot of the bridge. The special chinrest with built in pre-amp , capacitor and jack socket replaces your old chinrest. To use it, you simply plug a lead into the chinrest, then plug the other end of the lead into your amp/mixer, turn the volume up and away you go….yo ! Mmmmm, nice and loud.

Pop a 9 volt battery onto the little jack lead supplied. Plug it into the chinrest for one minute and remove. This will give you at least 16 hours playing time. You can recharge it any time you wish….you can’t overcharge it and it’s OK to top it up whenever you remember to.

Great !

Fedex have now declared that my Mandolin is lost!! How can this possibly happen!
I cannot recommend to anyone to use Fedex.
Sent on the 21st May by their Priority service and they have lost it. Still no tracking since Kidderminster. it should have gone to the USA.
PLEASE PLEASE KEEP SHARING and hopefully it might turn up somewhere.
This is a totally unique instrument, it will surely stand out anywhere.
Thank you
