Comments about Kremona VV-1 Detachable Passive Piezo Pickup for Violin and Viola:

Greetings,
I like this pickup. I had the VV - 2 for almost a year. The one part that is fragile is the transducer that picks up the vibrations from the violin bridge. It's fragile on both the VV 1 and VV 2. It barely fits in the notch on the bridge, and trying to make it fit is how my last one became broken. It's made from a sensor embedded in a thin wooden wafer. I had pro coverage on it, so it was replaced. I opted to not buy VV 2, as its only difference was the volume control knob. If you're playing out or live, you'll probably want to spend the extra 30 bucks for the volume control. If your recording or a basement player, I found it to be unnecessary.
So far as the high ends, I would recommend putting it through an EQ before the amp to dampen the high ends, or use amplification that has treble control. I play mine through my PA, and use the EQ on the PA and get good results. All in all, it was a good buy and works well for the money.

Sounds good, a little more modification than expected

    Comments about Kremona VV-1 Detachable Passive Piezo Pickup for Violin and Viola:

    It took a little bit more modification of the bridge to install than I had expected, but still not real major. It sounds pretty good, especially with a little HF roll off for harshness. I haven't tried it with a pre-amp, and I suppose that would improve the sound, but definitely usable in a live situation w/o it. Does need a lot of gain w/o the pre-amp, but much better for feedback than using a mic. Unplugged it doesn't noticeably affect the sound to my ear, so I just leave it on. But it's easy to take off if needed.
