Hohner has had a good reputation in instruments for many years. This electric violin is no exception. A little heavier than a regular violin. As with any violin the bridge must be worked to suit individual taste. Put on a good set of strings immediately upon arrival. I searched for a buzz and found new strings cured the problem. Excellent case holds the instrument securely, includes a bow, rosin, and shoulder rest. Overall, I'm very pleased with instrument.
I have played many violins and own three, including this one, so I know what I'm talking about. It's a bit like a metal playing electric guitar; clean, it sounds ok, distorted, THIS THING ROCKS! I play EVERY style of music except country. This is a good violin for rock, hard rock, experimental, fusion, funk (if you turn the tone nob down) and any sort of contemporary or fusion style music. note: you MUST turn all of the eq nobs on your amp (bass, treb, middle) ALL THE WAY DOWN or the a string will screech if played open. It looks cool too! The case and everything it comes with are exceptional. The bow isn't anything special, though. I was excited to find that it comes with a cable. I plan on buyin pedals for this thing.All in all, I recommend this to anyone who is either looking for that distincive electric sound and is on a buget. It's a great violin that can hold it's own against many guitars and other electric violins. If you're willing to spend more, buy a fender.
I've been playing guitar for ten years now and was looking to try something new. I don't know a lot about violins, but my guitar experience leads me to believe that I can tell a descent instrument when I play one. This one is well made. It is much louder (unplugged) than I thought it would be. It's fairly easy to play and seems to be ruggedly built. Plugged in, it sounds like it does without amplification, only louder. It has a bright and well defined tone. It holds it's tuning very well. The only complaint I have of the instrument is the paint. The color is not the most attractive, but it looks better in person than it does in the picture. Also, the paint was applied too thickly and blotted a bit on the scroll. The outside of the case looks cheap, but the inside testifies to the quality of the instrument. The bow it came with is really nice too. I've owned enough instruments to know that, while this is not a top-of-the-line instrument, it was an incredible value and I definitely got more than I expected.
I received this violin as Christmas present (2007) and have been really happy with it. Although I am not a fan of dark rosen and the D String broke on me the other day, I still believe this instrument is the best value for your money. The color is beautiful and people turn their heads to see you play. The sound was difficult to get use to at first since I was use to the acoustic for over 10 years but plug yourself into a good amp and rock out. I cant wait to hear what my violin will sound like with the new strings I will be putting on later this week! Hohner all around did a good job.
first off, this is not a bad violin. it's not NEARLY as good as my acoustic, but then again, what electric violin is as good as an antique violin?anywho, when i plugged this thing into my fender amp, it sounded ok. distorted, though, it sounds WONDERFUL! i also plugged it into my roland amp and through a danelectro blt slapback pedal and it sounded BEAUTIFUL! bottom line, use it with some sort of effect. the a string also screeches when it's clean. the bow it comes with is crap, but the cable, rosin and case are not bad. if you have the money, buy a fender. if not, this is a good alternative.
