    I've fallen in love with the violin all over again.

    I've been playing the violin for almost nine years now, and I thought this would be a good present to myself for the amount of time I've spent on one thing, and I also got this because I've always wondered what it would be like to play an electric violin. I have a lot to say so I'll just lay it out into pros and cons (:Pros:-It's just like playing an electric guitar, but it's a violin. You can use all the amps and distorters you want, and it sounds absolutely awesome.-For the price, this is an excellent instrument. The strings are brand new, the finish on the violin is beautiful (I got mine in black metallic), and it has a great tone.-It's very lightweight. It and the case together weigh less than holding my oboe (whilst cased).-I received it within four-five days of buying it.-The case was much better than I expected. It's actually a hard case (I couldn't tell from the picture) and has a pocket for storing things on top of it and a... 5/5 Adriane Baklava - See all my reviews This review is from: Cecilio 4/4 CEVN-1NA Solid Wood Mahogany Metallic Electric / Silent Violin with Ebony Fittings in Style 1 (Full Size) (Electronics) I've been playing the violin for almost nine years now, and I thought this would be a good present to myself for the amount of time I've spent on one thing, and I also got this because I've always wondered what it would be like to play an electric violin.

    A great deal, despite shortcomings

    First off, I'm not a professional violinist, but I have played the instrument for a number of years. Also, I've only had this instrument for a little less than a week... but I WILL keep updating this review as time goes on. Finally, I ordered this off Amazon. I cannot speak to the products received from another company.My bottom Line: To purchase this instrument at such a low price is a fantastic deal. Growing up, playing the violin, it was hard if not impossible to find a quality instrument at such a low price (I spent $125 on this instrument). Of course, this package does have some flaws. Below is an in-depth review, so let's get down to it.THE INSTRUMENTPros:- This is a solid-body electric violin, meaning no feedback!!- The instrument has a sturdy, strong feel.- The bridge, tailpiece, & chin-rest are fantastic (no issues).- The pegs were not broken or damaged in any way.- Contains three perfectly fine 1/8" jacks (Line Out,... 4/5 skimask_review - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Awesome violin for quiet practice!!!!

    While I read others reviews, I don't usually write reviews myself because I'm bad....But this time I decided to do it and I'm repenting. I haven't been so excited about a purchase in a long, long time, not even when I got my first iPhone or the retina mac, and I got to say that I love these things and I'm fanatic about.First if you don't know anything about violins or never played one, don't review this violin, or go take lessons and try play some violins in a brick and mortar place first.I'm professional and I've been playing violin for 23 years, not to brag about myself but to give credibility to this review.The violin comes with a light nice case, bow, rosin, headphones, battery and cable all for $129 on the other big auction website.

    but I was very disappointed when I received this item

    - I have been playing violin on and off for about 14 years and have also apprenticed at a violin makers shop when I was younger. I was looking for a very inexpensive electric violin because I have recently moved to the city from the suburbs and with that came shared walls with neighbors so I did not want to disturb them when I practiced late at night. I was very excited when I received this item and even paid for one day shipping because I missed my late night practice sessions so much, but I was very disappointed when I received this item. I have two major complaints about this product that were the cause for me to return it:1. In every picture of the product it shows fine tuners on each string, but there is only one on the violin that I received (on the E string). - I find fine tuners very useful for inexpensive violins as the pegs do not adjust as easily and just for quick and easy tuning fine tuners are very useful. I know I can put fine tuners on, but reason 2... 1/5 CG - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: ADM 4/4 Full Size Black Electric/Silent Violin Outfit, Playwood Construction with Ebony Fittings - High Gloss Violin Package(with Violin Hard Case, Bow, Rosin, EQ) To be honest, I wasn't expecting too much when I ordered this. I play acoustic violin and wanted to try something different. I was pleasantly surprised when I took it out, it looks really well made. Had it tuned and ready to play in ten minutes! No peg slipping, which is common in cheaper violins. I would suggest changing the strings. Manufacturers strings are never good.

    0 5/5 Travis St. Peter - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ADM 4/4 Full Size Black Electric/Silent Violin Outfit, Playwood Construction with Ebony Fittings - High Gloss Violin Package(with Violin Hard Case, Bow, Rosin, EQ) I am Margarets husband and I have enjoyed this violin. My background- Played since 5th grade(classical), 1991 started playing country, 1997-1999 played in a band professionally. Then had to start my career and stopped playing for quite awhile. Just getting back into playing and this is my first truly electric violin(I used a Fishman- in-bridge pickup on my acoustic). The strings are a tad higher than usual due to the fact that the bridge is sitting on the pick-up. I play it through a VOX LEAD AMPLUG(for guitar) and also a NUX PG-2(for guitar) through a BOSE mini speaker or headphones. It is not completely &#34;silent&#34;. Practice w/out headphones or amplification is possible. Stays in-tune. Headphones, that are included, are pretty cheap. Bow is sufficient, as well as, the rosin. I have received alot of compliments on the way it looks. I brought to Africa with me and it traveled well. Going to get a Woods Violin Amp when I get back to the states. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, April 9, 2015

    Great violin!

    0 5/5 Christina - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stagg EVN 4/4 MRD Silent Violin Set with Case - Metallic Red (Electronics) One of the strings had become bent during transit and the bridge had come loose but it's easily fixable and sounds great! The strings sit a bit higher than I'm used to, maybe because the bridge sits in a holder rather than right on the violin but I can probably have someone sand it down a bit if I need to. This is my first electric violin and I am well pleased with it! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, January 13, 2012

    Excellent Electric Violin (but avoid buying from Electric Violin Shop)

    The product was without doubt excellent. The Yamaha SV-130 violin, black did accordingly what is stated. It's indeed, a "silent" violin. The sound with headphones or with amplifier is okay, but it's not that close to being natural "acoustic" sound. Basically, I suggest using this Yamaha electric violin for electrical and practical purpose. If you're going to perform classical music and not fiddle, I suggest buying an acoustic violin. This yamaha is meant for practice and performing (I wouldn't recommend performing classical music, such as Beethoven and such).This one is for Electric Violin Shop because apparently, they didn't like my review so they decided to delete it for their own convenience.Just for the record, I bought mine at Electric Violin Shop. I recommend buying here at Amazon or other trustworthy (with great customer service).As far as service goes, it didn't goes as great as I thought it would be.

    Uncomfortable

    0 3/5 Jesse (ID USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Yamaha SV-130 Series Silent Electric Violin - Instrument Only Black Instrument Only This is much better quality than most other mass-produced electric violins, but there is one fatal flaw: it's too uncomfortable. The shoulder rest and chin rest are too rigid with too few options for adjusting them to fit the player. The chin rest is entirely a part of the violin, so there's no way to switch it. The shoulder rest, while made by KUN, is too difficult to adjust as well.The violin is really great other than that. The steel strings are okay quality, but they can easily be replaced. Because of they type of pickup on this, you could put on any strings you want. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, April 23, 2015
