By Lefty

Pros

  • Easy To Play
  • Sounds Good

Cons

  • Blemishes In Finish
  • Finish Is Glossy Not Flat
  • Poor Quality Craftsmanship
  • Some Fine Tuners Stiff

Best Uses

  • Accompaniment

Comments about Barcus Berry Vibrato-AE Series Acoustic-Electric Violin:

I picked piano black because the picture appeared to be flat black or semi-gloss. There were blemishes in the finish which is glossy and easier to see. Had trouble with two fine tuners which were hard to turn. I thought about returning it but it plays well acoustic and electric. Not sure another fiddle would play as well.

      A Strong Choice, But Maybe Not a Great One

      By Mueller

      from Nashville, Tennessee

      Pros

      • Consistent

      Cons

      • Somewhat overpriced

      Best Uses

      • Accompaniment

      Comments about Barcus Berry Vibrato-AE Series Acoustic-Electric Violin:

      A good quality violin, with an excellent pickup, but I'm not convinced that it's worth the high price tag. I purchased mine (Natural Finish) used for about half the cost, and I've had nothing but praise for it.

      That being said, I believe the pickup is what is driving up the cost of this violin. Acoustically, while this violin is quite nice, it doesn't have the same punch that a higher priced violin should have. In my opinion, purchase the Barcus Berry only if you can find a good deal for it. Otherwise, either go full acoustic or full electric.

        I have played music for over fifty years. I really like my Barcus Berry red and black AE Violin. I have owned it for four years and it looks like new. Good sound and easy to play for sure. Thanks for asking.
