HBV 890BCF 4/4: a feel and sound I love

27.01.2017
Some few years ago I did start to play violin and suddenly I did find myself with three of them: a low cost one, a good one for study and a 100 years old one, family heritage.

I'm a musician by hobby, at home I do record my own music using multitrack record systems, so an electrical violin was the natural choice. The HBV 890BCF 4/4 was a try for me, but I'm really very happy with it.

Compared to the 100 years old acoustic violin it have less harmonics but the sound have a personality and with the string set I love (everyone of us have a string set of choice, isn't?), it have a superb sound and nearly the same playing feel of the ancient violin. And it mix very well with other electrical instruments too, leaving a pleasant mark on the records.

As a plus, it weight nealy the same as my study acoustic instrument so it is also a perfect mute instrument for exercising (even at night).

It's not perfect: in some side parts the varnish isn't as gloss as in the visible surfaces but when I discovered this I was already in love with the instrument and while Thomann people did offer to have it replaced, I refused.

I would only have purchased it before throwing money on the low cost one!

Bad construction quality!

20.12.2015
Several bad construction issues:

-> Bottom screw got out and to fix it i had to put another screw in it that got out of the wood to be sturdy

-> If battery is put the wrong poles it instantly starts to overheat and smell to burnt components. No protection to this common battery misuse mistake

-> Bow is very bad.
