No instrument modification needed!
The Shadow Nanoflex Violin/Viola Pickup System is built to authentically reproduce the vibrations of your violin or viola with every move of the bow in all positions.
The Nanoflex pickup not only takes the vibrations of the strings like common undersaddle pickups, it senses the vibrations of the strings and the body of the instrument simultaneously. Due to active amplification directly at the pickup and 100% shielding of the entire system, no sound will be lost and no hum created.
Shadow felt that because of the beautiful design and incredible frequency response in violins and violas that no instrument modification was a must in developing this pickup system.
The Shadow violin pickup mounts easily under the bridge and senses the vibrations of the bridge and the body. The control unit with volume and tone knobs mounts on violin side with chin rest type assembly. The control unit has an input for the pickup and a standard 1/4" jack output, 3V cell battery (2032). Battery life averages 1 year.

Comments about Shadow Nanoflex Violin/Viola Pickup System:
Unit is very nicley made ( Germany, not china ) I give it 5 just for that. Has tone & volume control knobs on the unit. Knobs are too low & its hard to adjust while playing.Does have a nice sound though.The biggest disappointment was the sound "Pick up Element". It's a thick plastic strip that goes "Under" the violin bridge..which probably works well for sound pick up..but when you want to play your violin without the sound system (acoustic only), you have now changed your violin to being "Muted" all the time. I believe this item would work very well if you don't care if your violin is muted or not. so 5 star for made in germany & 0 star for mfg's dumb ideal for their location of sound pick up .. 3 star avg. A notice should be included with each unit. NOTICE this set- up changes your violin voice box, to be permanently muted
