The violin on the rdv
13.12.2014
Perfect finish, precise electronics, handle more bouboule than my jb but very pleasant to play, very wide sound palette, I like the sound in passive especially with the micro precision. No doubt about Japanese manufacture it is sharp as a katana and the handle is very easy to adjust

Simply one of the best!
A. Puri, 08.12.2018
Arrived happily at home after waiting for six months; seems to be the average time to get hold of this wonder built almost by hand in Japan under the direct supervision of Roger Sadowsky. The Hybrid Metro is an absolutely versatile tool both from the point of view of violin making and the electrical part. Thanks to the preamplifier the possibilities of sound and tone (from vintage to modern) are practically endless but, from personal experience, once you find the right stamp, tailored to your needs and tastes, you will hardly need to change it. Two of the features that surprised me are the volume, uncontrollable, and above all the fact that on all the strings and in every position every note always comes out clear and distinct: fact that I found more unique than rare even on other low cost much more high. Just a couple of notes. First: on my instrument I unfortunately found a sharp (and dangerous for my fingers) smear on the MI key, probably an excess of melting not eliminated during polishing. This left me puzzled and incredulous considering that, according to the law, Sadowsky himself prays himself to check the quality of all his products before they leave the factory. Secondly: I would recommend finding a more practical, safe and less invasive way to remove the protective tissue on the pickguard, especially around the knobs of the potentiometers that must be completely dismantled to remove the cellophane residues. All in all, however, two small drawbacks that do not detract from an extraordinary tool even considering the quality / price ratio.
