    Great Quality Instrument!!

    I have been playing violin for three years now and I felt it was time to take the plunge into the electric violin world. I was also looking for something relatively inexpensive since my main violin is on the higher end. This was the perfect choice.Sound - Try as it might, it just can't replicate the sound of an acoustic violin (which I wasn't looking for anyway). It can get pretty close though and all in all the sound is nice. The pickup is good, not the best quality but it does its job pretty well. As for being silent, it is quieter than an acoustic with a mute, but not completely silent.Construction/Look - The body is nice and solid unlike some of the cheap online instruments you can get. The finish is well done and the ebony pieces with mother of pearl inlays look rather nice. The inlays fall flush too, nothing sticking out at all. The pegs don't slip at all. The only thing I could find wrong with the construction was the bridge. It was a bit too high but... 5/5 Mike - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great violin for the price.

    4/5 Note Thanupakorn (IOWA CITY, IOWA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Cecilio 4/4 CEVN-2NA Solid Wood Mahogany Metallic Electric / Silent Violin with Ebony Fittings in Style 2 (Full Size) (Electronics) This is a solid beginner's instrument. Quality is decent. Detailing on the body is a little rough, but minor. The action is slightly higher than most making it a little harder to play. Tuning works just fine and the bow works like a bow should work. It is also just a hair heavier than a standard violin. Biggest complaint on this one is that I purchased the mahogany finish thinking it would be more of a wood stained look. Instead its more of a sparkly red finish. Wood grain only shows on the back of the neck. This is like due to covering up the rough woodwork job mentioned previously. Overall, I would recommend it as a beginner violin for someone looking to get into playing or something quiet just to practice on.

    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?)

    Arrived in Damaged and Used Condition

    Updated Review 02-01-17:Since my first review, my wife and I have since returned a total of 4 used and/or damaged violins. The issues were as follows:1st Violin Received (shown in first 4 photos attached):a) The Bridge was Pre-Installed (most Cecilio products come with the bridge NOT installed to prevent shipping damages and this model even comes with a paper that states it should have been shipped with the bridge "uninstalled" and how to correctly and safely set it up. Thus, it was most-likely used prior).b) The bow's hairs were entangled in the case's latching mechanism which resulted in broken hairs. This was an issue since having a luthier rehair a bow costs about $50 at most music stores…c) The blue protective cover to the violin was coarsely scuffedd) the headphone set was hanging out of its plastic package and the black tie was untied and tossed separately in the case (aka: used since the only way someone can get to it is by... 1/5 J.

    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.

This review is from: AW 4/4 Electric Violin Full Size Wood Silent Fiddle Stringed Instrument Bow Headphone Case Black Great starter violin! I was not expecting much because it was a really cheap price, but the quality did exceed my expectations. I would recommend this to novice violinist. Be prepared to assemble the bridge yourself (as most new violins) and expect to tune it a lot in the first two weeks of practice until you 'break your strings in'.

    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.

The recepient has enjoyed the ability to play through an amp and I hope this encourages her to play more often. The strings and bridge were fair quality and will be upgraded when it is time to replace, but they are suitable for getting started. The headphones are not very well made but easy replaced. For the price, I would recommend this for any one interested in their first exploration into an electric violin.
