Please suggest this to your favourite violin shop. I will be pleased to hear from them. The cost of installing in your favourite acoustic instrument is the install kit plus your local violin maker´s fee.
NB: Kit systems can only be ordered and installed by StringAmp™ accredited trade instrument makers shops dealers, to ensure the highest quality of fitting by a skilled violin maker.
For total stage freedom, I suggest the beltpack preamp version, combined with a professional quality wireless transmitter. The most versatile Beltpack version fits in a pocket, or in a belt pouch along with the transmitter. Cables can be a thing of the past, without sonic compromises.
A special miniature preamp can be ordered, for use only with specific wireless transmitters that will supply power for it. Either Beltpack, or Wireless preamp,can be back ordered later to add all options available for your instrument.
Remember, NO feedback!! One most popular national country/folkrock singer/fiddler star is playing wireless and dancing with the audience – up in front of, and sometimes on top of the 10kW+ PA!

Satisfaction OR Your money back!
If you are seriously looking for the best, you can order a 4 or 5-string complete violin system with a money back guarantee, if returned within 10 days from your receipt of the instrument. You order it prepaid , and pay for the return freight and insurance, in case it is not satisfactory. It could be your last and best investment solution, but if not, it’s not free, , still it’s probably cheaper than buying the wrong system over and again, and then have to live with it.
