Using high quality bridge blanks and well aged Bosnian bridge wood, the top portion is carefully mortised and firmly fixed into the base which houses the two sensors. This two-piece construction enables me to place the pickups exactly where I want in relation to the feet, giving the best response and most open tone while still holding up acoustically.

Description

We are thrilled with the sound of this new innovative system and consider it a major step forward in violin amplification. The Aceto/Violect Pickup System is now available on both our Violect and N·V models. It is also available as a retro-fit for all Aceto/Violects from 1988 to the present, as well as for use on acoustic instruments.

In response to my customers, who loved the amplified sound of my standard pickup and who were asking for a system that had negligible effect on the instrument acoustically, I have redesigned the standard pickup to have a narrower foot width and a more solid structure.

This two-piece construction enables me to place the pickups exactly where I want in relation to the feet, giving the best response and most open tone while still holding up acoustically.

This bridge pickup is the model used on all our Artist series instruments and is now offered for use on all violins. This version has a bit less output than the original design but still strong enough to be used directly into a combo style amp. When well fit by a competent violin repairman, the tone is uncompromising and faithful to even the finest of acoustic instruments.

    My previous experience of various violin bridge pickups runs pretty wide since 1973. While they provide a clean clear sound, they generally only reproduce the sound of the strings and the bridge itself, which is usually rather buzzy and not very violin-like. So when I decided to use a bridge pickup for my “nice” violin into a new ToneDexter preamp, I was a bit skeptical. however, the ToneDexter people clearly recommend a bridge pickup, so I naturally went to the best maker: Eric Aceto, the force behind Ithaca Stringed Instruments. I was certain that I knew it would sound as good as it could.
    However,I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the raw pickup signal: the buzzy overdriven sound I expected was somehow changed by the Aceto bridge into a more velvety sound, rich and smooth. It made an ideal basis for the “Tone Print” technology of the ToneDexter. And it soundsc better on its own than any other bridge pickup I’ve tried, obviously. Eric’s Da Guy!
