Headway’s The Band Violin Pickup

This extraordinary rubbery, plastic strip wraps around the lower bout of the instrument and is held in place by simple velcro bindings. It’s clearly been well thought through by Headway’s R&D department, who have built the Band to withstand the rigours of the road with excellent ergonomics making it very easy to set up and use, with the pickup to the front and the jack socket to the back – so it’s not in the way when you’re playing. Simplicity is the key here. There are no onboard switches or knobs that inevitably get in the way, confuse and aggravate. Sound modelling is strictly for the amplifier and Headway’s own acoustic SH60 is a perfect match. Our sample band gave very few feedback problems, and performed admirably. OK, it’s not going to give you the clarity and clear results that you might expect from a good microphone, but we’d suggest it’s the next best thing. And then there’s the benefit of being able to move around and use the bow freely without any encumberance whatsoever. Thoroughly recommended.
