i want to build a pickup bridge for violin ,maybe from wood or some other material,for use with a electric violin,but to have for each string a 1 element or dual element piezo i am not sure this is the word<piezo>,
So,somewhere under the string ,this <piezo>with separate output,i am looking for the tone that zeta violins have with that ZZZ sound clear but warm
I put a picture ti see what i am talking about,maybe i don't explain well,in the bridge udner string element dual piezo and for each piezo a separate output

so , i am open for sugestions,advices everything that coul learn me and help me!!

My understanding is that pickups tend to be of one of 2 forms.

The first is a magnetic type that relies on you having steel strings. Probably not going to work with a violin :D

The second is essentially a microphone placed inside the device to pick up the sound of the instrument, but be shielded somewhat from external sound sources.

I piezo sensor is a piece of crystal (or ceramic) that generates a voltage when it is deformed. A "crystal microphone" is an example of this used to pick up sounds.

I know of no way that a piezo sensor could pick up the sound from a single string unless it was physically attached to the end of the string.

Maybe someone else has more useful knowledge.

I can move this question to somewhere that more people will see it if you like. Just ask :)

edit: I see you posted a duplicate message already. I removed the other one in your introduction thread)
