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!
