Decent electric violin starter
Uros S, 19.02.2020
I bought this for my daughter who plays violin as a second more fun instrument to play with. Instrument quality is quite decent, well painted and surely a looker and eye catcher. Unplugged sound is quite strong and even daughter's teacher said she is surprised over the sound. Plugged in sound is not really perfect, but for sure more than enough for upgrade some gigs you are dealing with. With a use of an EQ and while playing with some effects, you can get some really interesting sounds at the end. Considering what you get for 129€, is a real bargain for anyone, who wants to try the electric violin.

Overall, great budget electric violin
Anne Dorko, 25.03.2019
The external parts of this violin are poor quality - I have replaced both the chin rest and shoulder rest. However, the violin itself is decently made and it produces a much nicer sound than I anticipated at this price point. It?s lightweight, easy to play, and I love this gorgeous instrument in black and white.

Precio - Calidad:10/10
Fernando Bellido Pazos, 03.11.2020
Lo primero, antes de comprar el violín, estaba en manos del típico violín barato chino (Que encima estaba mal construido).

Lo compre por la mera razón de poder practicar de manera "más silenciosa" que, con él acústico, esto sin duda lo ha conseguido. Aunque a falta de reviews/comentarios acerca de esto fue un poco lanzarme, pero sin duda ha valido la pena

** Pros
- Poder practicar en "tu mundo", sin molestar al resto, que a veces es necesario
- El arco que viene, me encanta, muy ligero en comparación con otros
- El diseño deja bocas abiertas, es simple pero bello en sí mismo
- Tanto la resina como la maleta están bastante bien

** Contras
- El apoya hombro que viene, me resulta incómodo a mí personalmente, no es como el usual de uno acústico, no es gran problema se puede soltar la mano izquierda sin ningún temor
- Al conectar un Jack 3.5 para tener un backing-track, se pierde mucho el sonido del violín por el auricular, pero ajustándolo un poco se puede sacar algo

** Posibles mejoras
- Ampliar el bolsillo de la maleta para las hojas,
- Mejorar el reposa hombros, para hacerlo mas cómodo
- A lo mejor incluir un Jack 6.5?

Muy Satisfecho, en general

Satisfaite
Mouf, 20.05.2019
Bel objet, belle finition. Le blanc est un peu nacré / irisé.
J'ai immédiatement remplacé les cordes (j'ai d'ailleurs cassé le ré d'origine en l'accordant...). Je pensait devoir changer le chevalet mais il est très correct.
Le son gresille beaucoup sur un ampli et le cable jack fourni est de mauvaise qualité, ainsi que le casque.
L'archet est très correct mais un peu lourd. Le violon est moins lourd que ce que j'imaginait. C'est très correct pour un electrique.
Je trouve l’épaulière fournie inutilisable et préfère utiliser l’épaulière classique de mon violon acoustique. Elle tient assez bien dessus mais glisse un peu (il n'y a pas de rebords)
C'est très agréable de pouvoir jouer silencieusement pour s'entrainer. C'est aussi tres sympa de pouvoir utiliser des effets sur un ampli.
Je suis très contente de mon achat. Ce violon électrique ne remplace pas du tout un violon acoustique mais il complète très bien mon équipement!
Je ne le recommande pas non plus pour l'apprentissage pur car les sensations, le poids, le son, ne sont pas assez fidèle au violon classique et qu'il est en fait moins maniable et facile a jouer.
