    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?)

    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.

    Wow...definitely well worth the price

    This is a great fiddle. I'm a semi-professional violinist and have been playing for 20+ years. This violin far exceeded my expectations of something that cost less than $150.I'm very impressed by the battery life. It takes one 9-volt battery. I've had this instrument for almost a month and I haven't had to change the battery yet. The battery survived dress rehearsals and opening weekend for a musical where I had the instrument turned on for close to 3 hours every night for a week.The tone control is amazing. Much more expensive models don't have this feature on the instrument itself. I can make the violin sound smooth and mellow or gritty and raw with just the spin of a dial, no fancy effects pedals needed!The instrument is well made with no blemishes. The paint job (I got a blue one) is great - vibrant color and sparkly! The bow is definitely cheap, but decent enough if you don't already have a better bow (for those who have had issues... 5/5 K.

    Good quality for the price.

    4/5 R. B. (McDonough, GA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stagg EVN 4/4 MBL Silent Violin Set with Case - Metallic Blue (Electronics) For the price it's a great violin. My Daughter loves it and it plays well. The only issue is the tuning pins were having trouble gripping (it kept detuning) so we added some rosin to the pins and reinserted them firmly, seems to have solved the problem. I can't give it 5 stars though, only 4. We had some issue with the battery door not closing correctly and the strings that come on it... just take them off and get some good strings. The rosin that came with it was also a bit lacking in quality. Again, for the price a great 4 star electric violin.

    Nice, inexpensive instrument

    4/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stagg EVN 4/4 WH Silent Violin Set with Case - White (Electronics) Nice, inexpensive instrument. The build quality is good, feels very solid and not fragile. Having played violin all my life, I've never tried electric so don't have a lot of experience. The violin sounds pretty good even without additional sound processing or very little of it (just some reverb). I tried playing around with some effects but have not found any good ones yet. The headphones included with the violin are pretty cheap, but I honestly didn't expect anything from it, so no disappointment there. Other than that, everything looks and works well. Also nice that it comes with pretty much everything you need to start playing right away. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 15, 2016

    Seems pretty nice. Headphone jack on back is handy

    5/5 Amazon Customer - 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) This is my first electric (been playing acoustic for years). Seems pretty nice. Headphone jack on back is handy; I can play without worrying about waking up my sleeping toddler. Bow is wood and horsehair. Still trying to work enough rosin into it I think. Have to scuff the rosin or you just can't get any into the bow. Mine was missing a string (as advertised). I put artisan strings on. Gives me a rattle on the D, but the sound is fine. Maybe different brand would have been better. Overall I'm pleased and would recommend this, at least for starters.
