Hello all, I need some advice on what type or brand of pick up I should get for my violin for a wedding I'm playing this November. The wedding is outdoors, on the beach, and I am playing solo.
I have searched around a bit and have noticed pick ups that clip to the bridge, ones that screw onto the side of the violin, and bands that fasten all the way around the violin's body, under the bridge.
What are your experiences with different types of pick ups? Any advice on which to seek out for my situation?
We have a local general music shop, but they're never well-stocked for string instruments and there's not a violin store for hours, so I will likely have to buy online.
