Barcus-Berry 3110 Clamp-On Bridge Violin Piezo Pickup with Preamp
Quote: "I'm a newcomer to the Barcus-Berry experience. I own several different transducer and piezo style pickups and started using the Barcus-Berry 3110 Clamp-On Bridge Violin Piezo Pickup with Preamp on tour mainly for its ease of use on the fly. I was traveling on the road with a pickup from another company that was really not performing and was desperate for a fix. The folks at Barcus-Berry came through for me with the 3110 system, and right out-of-the-box, it did the job flawlessly. It goes on easily, and I can switch it out to my other instruments quickly if necessary. Whether on my violin or viola, it produces impeccable sound that is focused and natural in the mix. You can crank it up in a loud rock environment without worry, and it performs great when youâ€™re just looking for sound reinforcement in a more intimate setting. Both in its performance and ease-of-use, the 3110 has really impressed me. Thanks Barcus-Berry!"
