Priceworthy and a good first buy
12.04.2014
Pros:
- A complete kit, works out of the box
- Decent sound, at least good enough if you're playing in a rock band or have a gig with the need of an electric violin
- Won't cause acoustic feedback in a PA-system. At least for regular use. With this we could have regular monitors instead of a headphone monitor system.
- With a little bit of tweaking (read below) its a really decent violin!

Cons:
- The bow that was supplied with mine was heavy unbalanced so I bought a carbon fibre one instead.
- The strings supplied works, but when I changed them to high quality strings I realized how horrible the supplied strings was. I would recommend everyone buying some better strings and restring the violin as soon as possible.
- The output jack calls for a 90 degree angeled phono cable. The supplied cable (which my sound technician called a "licuorice strap") is working for training but I had to have a better one on my first gig and with a regular phono cable you'll get the contact in your shoulder. Keep that in mind if your planning to play on gig, I think most technicians would call for a better cable and then you'll want a angled one.
- After 1,5 years of use the phono contact got loose and needed to be repaired.

Anything from classical to experimental!
Mark863, 12.02.2017
I originally bought this for quieter practicing due to neighbors. What is a surprise though is how amazing it sounds! Very easy to experiment with new sounds using guitar effects! Obviously looks very cool too, I get compliments on it every time i take it out. Sounds Clear and very versatile!

Good for learning - quietly
Jed, 29.01.2017
I bought an electric violin to start learning, so I didn't have to have a loud acoustic one and annoy all the neighbours and drive my housemates mad, which this violin is great for.

However, the tone is not very good, and the build quality is poor. The tailpiece ended up buckling on me after a month. it is attached by a plastic cable that I had to glue back on, and I have to take care that it doesn't break again, in my face.

Being able to plug headphones directly into it is a bonus, and it is really quite quiet, which is nice. The fingerboard doesn't feel quite the same as an acoustic violin however.

Recommended as a learning, or quiet practise tool only.

Its good for small stage performances also.
vyshakh, 27.10.2018
Everything is good. I gave quality - four star because some accessories are not too good. Violin is of good quality. Headphones and Violin case is not too good. But keeping the expectations real, for the price paid what they given is good enough. Violin bow is of beginner quality.
I bought this for silent practice. But now I have already used it for some small stage performances. Now I don't need to worry about audio feedback while performance.
I have done a single shot unboxing video of the product also. You can check it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jO0m2N2deFQ
