The Fishman Violin Transducer V 100 Design is Retarded. 
There. I finally got that off of my chest.

My old one - the V 200, was great: it clamped to the side of the fiddle with a carpenter's clamp, and had a sturdy 1/4 inch jack. And you just slipped a little wedge of copper or brass into the bridge. You needed to preamp and EQ it pretty heavily...the design sounds really screechy without it. But show up early for the gig and that's not a problem (I've been told that if you put the transducer in the bass side of the pickup it fixes that problem, but I haven't tried it, yet. Too lazy to take out a nail file and carve room in the bridge lately.)

It took some sound away, in the bass, but overall, it worked pretty well, was reliable, and if you wanted to just play acoustically, you could take the whole thing off in about 20 seconds.

But the little brass wedge is fragile, and it finally broke. I had to drop 109 bucks on a new one on short notice for a gig.

But when I opened the box, I had a different model: the V-100. They went from a 1/4 inch jack clamped on to the body to a 1/8th inch jack, which you have to tie on to the tailpiece with a zip tie.

And it only comes with one zip tie. So once you put it on, you can't take it off if you want to put it on again later.

And you can't transfer it from one violin to another.

And you can't fix it in place without crazy glue, which again would attach it permanently. So it flops around on the tailpiece.

And the 1/8th inch cord will get yanked out of the plug if you so much as look at it wrong. It fell out twice the other night.

It's a disaster, but the boneheads at the only stringed instruments department within reasonable driving distance didn't carry anything else. In fact, they didn't even know about the Fishman V 200 version or the Concertmaster hybrid system even existed -- much less carry it. (Way to stay up on the latest gear, guys!)

Didn't know anything about RL Baggs, either, although Baggs requires a luthier to fit the bridge to it, which I didn't have time for.

I think I'm going to switch over to RL Baggs, soon, anyway.

Splash, out
