    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. That's insane!!! Now the headphones and the bow kind of suck but who doesn't have a pair or two of more expensive headphones laying around? The bow is a little heavy and cheap but for a beginner or intermediate... 5/5 ghkgjh29752 (US) - See all my reviews This review is from: Cecilio 4/4 CEVN-1BK Solid Wood Electric/Silent Violin with Ebony Fittings in Style 1 - Full Size - Black Metallic (Electronics) 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.

Easy to tune. Holds a good tune. Sounds great. The bose system I added is a plus. Hits the high notes warmly.WARNING. The violin does not come with strings, violin case, bow, etc. The picture is deceiving.You have to set up the bridge and string in the strings that you must buy separately.

    Excitment followed by dissapointment

    After a good bit of research and reading reviews we settled on trying this violin. I let my 15 year old daughter pick the color and style, so she knew what she was getting for her birthday. When the box cam she was sooo excited she called me at work to ask if she could open it before I got home. When I got home I surprised to see her doing other things than playing the new violin. I asked her to play and it sounded terrible. The G string made such a distorted sound, even when not amplified. We tried to remedy this but no matter what, it still sounded the same. The bridge appeared to be installed incorrectly but that was easily corrected. She owns 2 concert violins and at this point only plays those. The electric has not been touched since the day it arrived. I just spent $60 on new strings for it and will give that a try. Never tried the bow or rosin that came with it, she is too used to her carbon fiber bow now. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that a hundred dollar... 2/5 rjg1620 (Atlanta GA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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

I'm an experienced violin player (I have several decades of experience playing this instrument) and this violin plays, sounds and feels just like a regular acoustic violin. I use it a lot to practice at night so nobody hears me, it's IDEAL!Also important: the strings and bridge are regular components.

    0 3/5 Beatrice Larson - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ViolinSmart EV20 Electric Violin (4/4 Full Size, Color: Blue) The body its self is pretty nice and durable, made of thick plastic. Although the strings were pretty low grade. But most importantly the bridge that came with it is way too high, making the strings sit higher than usual -- which is pretty uncomfortable. After a few hours of playing it I realized that the paint on the fingerboard started to rub off onto my fingers. The chin rest is a bitt out of place, too close to the tail piece, making your neck hurt. I prefer a shoulder rest when playing and I was very disappointed when my shoulder rest for my acoustic violin wouldn't stay on the electric one. I wish they made a custom shoulder rest, I would totally buy it. The pegs are extremely hard to keep in place (peg drops are an easy fix). Again, strings are pretty bad. I snapped the A string while tuning it the first time. But on a lighter note, it is a pretty good violin.
