I regularly get asked how I go about electrifying my fiddle, so for those interested here is a run though of my usual setup.
My acoustic fiddle is a 2015 Ateliers de la Dyle made in Brussels and purchased from the wonderful Philip Brown in Newbury. I also use a Ohrenform extra high chin rest with both fiddles, owing to having a rather long neck!

With Threepenny Bit I also use a Coda Joule carbon fibre bow.
