Good starter electric violin

Sotiria, 16.05.2013
This violin is a good start for those wanting their first electric violin. However, the quality on this outfit is not as good as other mid-range electric violins available and will benefit from some modifications.
The pegs hold their tune well and the neck isn't painted, which is a good thing for free left hand movement.
Here is a list of issues which I think needs to be known by anyone thinking of buying this violin:
The headphones are okay but not great. At this price, you can't really argue with them. The rosin is cheap but again, acceptable for the price. The bow is poor with rubber grips, ill-fitted hair. Okay for beginners I suppose, but replacement is advisable as you progress.
The battery (9V) is included but it's hard to get it in the compartment at the back because the space is too small. I left the sliding cover of the compartment off, to accommodate the battery.
The sound is okay.
The strings are poor and should be replaced. I found the string clearance (i.e. string distance to fingerboard) to be a little bit high and coupled with poor strings, this makes playing difficult (and at times, painful on the fingers).
The top nut is slightly too high and may benefit from modification i.e. lowering by filing down.
The fingerboard is not ebony, it's stained hardwood. It leaves black marks on your fingers.
The bridge is rough and needs lowering. A fairly easy job if you remove bridge material from the feet to reduce height. The bridge sits on the violin like an acoustic - it is not connected by means of a wire through the body of the violin, like some electric violins. This makes bridge lowering easy as it comes away from the body like an acoustic bridge. the top curve of the bridge conforms to the fingerboard curve nicely.
The fine tuning adjusters are hard to turn, would benefit from a little lubrication.
If the buyer is capable and can make adjustments to this violin, then I would recommend this violin as a cheap alternative to the more expensive mid-range electric violins but modifications are needed to get the most from it.

Not really a violin

A_S, 15.09.2013
If you're looking to sound like a violin, this insn't for you. If you wish to get any sort of appreciation from "proper" classically-trained violinists, this is definitely not for you.

But if you happen to be, say, a guitarist looking for expanding your sonic palette, then this is one of the best things you can buy for the price. If you want to imitate John Cale's drones on a budget, this is certainly for you.

I've found that it works especially well just stacked behind loads of guitar effects. Even distortion sounds fine if you EQ it a bit. Delays, reverbs and phasers all sound extremely spacey combined with this.

If you're into ambienty-drony-noisy-shoegazey or just somewhat "out-there" stuff - for F's sake, buy this. If you're on your way to be the next Paganini, you better find something else.
