how to buy an electric violin?

Recommended Posts

I am from Egypt and our currency equals 0.058 USD. to afford 800 USD "at least for a good reasonable factory violin", means more than 14,000 pounds and this is a very big deal for an amateur" not professional violinst"

So i now started to think of electric violins also i'm a big fan of acoustic.. SO WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN THE ELECTRIC VIOLIN OR HOW I EXAMINE QUALITY OF MATERIAL BEFORE SOUND? and thx thx so much

I entirely appreciate your difficulty but I think I hear a shocked silence from all the luthiers out there. Although I don't have any advice to offer maybe I should speak up anyway - WE DON'T HEAR ENOUGH ABOUT ELECTRIC VIOLINS ON THIS SITE!

The most important things on a totally electric violin (not acoustic with a pickup on it) is the set-up and the amp. Shape doesn't really matter. You need the neck to be comfortable (something lacking in most low end elec. violins I've seen), the string length to be correct, and the bridge/nut/tailpiece/saddle to be well made and installed. After that it is all about what you use to get the sound out of it, mainly the amplifier. You are going to pay for a good neck/fingerboard and set-up, so focus on those aspects.
