The L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic DI Preamp
Luthier Gary Bartig recommends this tried and true preamp when playing our Acoustic Electric Violins in an amplified setting. In fact, a preamp is essential if you're plugging directly into a PA system.
Otherwise, Gary recommends Roland amplifiers, as Roland makes a number of amps designed for our type of passive pickup.
