About this blog

This blog is dedicated to bowed instruments.

Being a professional fiddler myself a lot of the posts will concern the violin and viola. But this knowledge also applies for other stringed instruments.

I will look into microphones, pickups, preamps, amplifiers, effects etc. from a violinist perspektive.

I am also going to talk about the instruments I play or instruments that I want to play.


  1. I've read about your moving coil experiment on the fiddleforum. I'm very interested in the moving coil concept and recently brought this threadh http://music-electronics-forum.com/t14952/ back to live.

    Can I invite you to join the discussion?
    I would love to see some pictures of your setup.

    Kind regards,
