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.

    Pros

    • Easy To Play
    • Sounds Good

    Cons

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

    • 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.
