DIY magnetic pickup for fiddle
See the project here
Not many makers of electric violins have been using magnetic pickups, I know of only a couple.
I think the problems described here are part of explanation, but never the less I find it striking that almost every electric guitar is made with electromagnetic pickups.
The violin in the picture was made by Siegmund Guitars and is not the one described in the project it is just quite beautiful i think.
