An ELECTRIC VIOLIN is great if you want to:
-PLAY LATE AT NIGHT without disturbing the NEIGHBORS
-Use HEADPHONES so NO-ONE CAN HEAR YOU playing your violin (Model EV1:SOLID $450 -has a headphone jack). This is perfect for self-conscious free playing.
-PLAY THROUGH A SPEAKER in a BAND.
-SOUND LIKE AN ELECTRIC GUITAR with GUITAR EFFECTS: chorus, delay, reverberation, distortion, flanger, compressor etc.
At STRING2U, ELECTRIC VIOLINS are available starting from S$390.
There are two types:
1. The SILENT SOLID Electric Violin EV1 and EV2;
2. The ACOUSTIC HOLLOW Electric Violin EV-Hollow.
i) EV1 & EV2 -the SOLID BODY SILENT ELECTRIC VIOLIN
– has a headphone jack and a 1/4″ speaker jack with volume and tone controls: the EV1 is a 5 String Electric Violin with the controls near the bridge and it costs S$450; theEV2 is a 4 String Electric Violin with the controls on the side and it costs S$390.
ii) The EV-HOLLOW is a 5 string ACOUSTIC VIOLIN with an ELECTRIC PICKUPand it costs S$390 – it has a 1/4″ speaker jack with the volume and tone controls on the side. It has no headphone jack and does not require a battery.
The EV1:SOLID ELECTRIC VIOLIN from STRINGS2U is great if you want to:
-Pay $450 for Strings2u model EV1:SOLID instead of $1,400 for a comparable Yamaha SV130 Silent Violin.
-Have a realistic violin sound instead of a processed Yamaha sound.
-Have a properly set up, easy to play violin with the correct string height and bridge.
-Have great quality sound output to a speaker or recording interface as it uses a 1/4 inch output, not a headphone jack output (the Yamaha SV130 also has a 1/4 inch output, but be careful to ask about their other models as some have a headphone jack size output only).
-Have 5 Strings to SOUND LIKE A VIOLIN, VIOLA and a CELLO. The EV1:SOLID has a 5th string which gives you four notes below G string. For the Yamaha equivalent 5 string SV255 you have to pay S$1,960 not $450!
-Use your own chinrest and shoulder rest on the EV1-SOLID – that’s right the Yamaha SV130 doesn’t allow you to change the chinrest or the shoulder rest!
