    Wow is the word. I'm very impressed.

    What an amazing product and amazing company to order from. First, let me say, I have played violin for over 40 years. Female, 5'3", petit (yes, that is necessary to know). Classically trained, and about 15 yrs ago, I decided to start to electrify my violin and rock out on stage and in recording studios. I have gone through several pick-ups and have fallen in love with the Realist (the best one on the market - just make sure you get it installed correctly and expertly by a luthier who knows the business of electric). BUT I always wanted an electric violin. And I finally found the Bunnel Edge. It's really everything you would expect from an online purchase, from an electric violin outfit, and from a company that you want to work with. In the past, I have tried an unnamed solid body electric violin (it way too heavy to hold up comfortably for my little frame); I tried a Cecilio (very disappointed - inability to stay in tune, pegs wouldn't stick at all, heavy body for a... 5/5 denys gorski - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Don't hesitate to buy this

    5/5 Karen M - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bunnel EDGE Electric Violin Outfit Rock Star Red Amp Included I bought this for my 12 year old as a grade reward for school and he LOVES it! Being able to play is on it's own, with the amp or thru headphones makes it a more enjoyable experience. The quality is wonderful and the sound is fantastic. Don't hesitate to get this. The whole kit is perfect for a starter or, as in out case, an extra violin that will allow us to leave the other violin at home for school and still be able to practice often.My son tried an electric violin out in the music store and fell in love. I couldn't afford almost a thousand dollars and he's twelve... I wouldn't spend that anyway at this age. I found this one on Amazon and decided to try it based on the reviews. WELL worth it! It plays just as nicely as the one 4-5X's the price and comes with everything we need! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 24, 2016

    Amp didn't work, but got a prompt replacement

    EDIT: Katie from support promptly emailed me and gave me a call after seeing the original negative review about having a bad amp. After giving her my address, I had a tracking number for a replacement within minutes. Clearly, this product and company deserves every 5 star review they get and work hard to make sure their customers get good deals and service. Also, I was able to plug the violin into a friend's amp in the meantime, and the sound quality is much better than I was expecting for this price.ORIGINAL: AMP doesn't work/works intermittently. Most I can get is about 10 seconds out of it. It coming with a pocket amp was a big reason I bought this one, also the fact that it got 100% 5 star reviews. Starting to think those reviews are not real.I guess you get what you pay for after all. Violin seems like it would have great sound, but can't use the amp. It comes with a lifetime warranty, so we will see how that goes. Will update to either 1 star if support... 5/5 Ben (MOSCOW, ID, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    You get what you paid for.

    Ok this violin when i recieved it, it looked great and as i began to remove the plastic from items inside the case i noticed on the bow that some of hairs had already snapped which ok fine its just a few strands. It will still work, cool. Well i took the electric violin out i noticed a few blimishes (scratches) which is fine im ok with i can fix the scratches, except for the chin rest was pretty bad. I began to setup the bridge like instructed on youtube(i know that is not your channel if you even have a channel) and began to tighten the strings up and the very last string (low note string) snapped sorry still learning notes and what each string is called but anyway it didnt take much to snap it, to me it show less care in your own product. So now i will have to go spend more money than i paid to have it restrung and tuned but hopefully better quality strings and bridge piece , but as a beginner if you(the buyer) its not to bad, but i will probably just to my local music store and buy... 3/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: AW 4/4 Electric Violin Full Size Wood Silent Fiddle Musical Instrument Fittings Headphone Jujube Red The bridge on this violin was not set up at all... the bottom where it interfaces with the pick up had to be adjusted and there were no string notches cut at all or even markings... with a violin of this low price range, expecting someone to have take it to a luthier to have it set up is silly... it should at least come with instructions how to set one up yourselves... had to go to YouTube Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 14, 2017

This review is from: Kinglos 4/4 White Blue Flower Colored Solid Wood Intermediate-A Electric / Silent Violin Kit with Ebony Fittings Full Size (DSZA1201) Great service from this seller. I asked questions and within a few hours I would have a response back. My daughter requested a white bridge and they gave her a white bridge. One fine tuner was not connected but that was okay, we had it put back on. Extra strings and bridge were in the case. She did not need to use the rosin that came with but it looked good, Not crystallized. The violin came before the estimated date. My daughter is very excited since she saved up to buy this., September 11, 2016
