Mid range

Piezo

Barcus Berry 3100

Tested on an accustic violin by @guysoft review:
This pickup really sounds decent, and a major advantage is you can attach it to any block of wood with just two screws, making it easy to switch between prototypes.
Its shape makes it hold the bridge from moving too much, which is good, still picks up some ambient sound, but for its price its a decent pickup.
