Comments about The Realist RV Pro Series 4/4 Size Acoustic-Electric Violin:

This is a nice and relatively inexpensive five string violin. It has one of the most accurate and natural sounding pickups on it that I have heard. The violin itself is well-made and very playable.

Comments about The Realist RV Pro Series 4/4 Size Acoustic-Electric Violin:

Really nice instrument. Came in perfect condition with all accessories. It came with a really nice pro style case. The violin iteself has a very good acoustic sound and a really good plugged in tone, probably the best I have heard. The acoustic sound is good enough and sweet enough to compete with all but the best acoustic violins. The low C and G strings are very rich and chewy and very viola like. This instrument tends toward the darker end like a viola, but the E still has a nice presence and a sweet tone.

      Comments about The Realist RV Pro Series 4/4 Size Acoustic-Electric Violin:

      Very impressed by the sound that came out of this violin when I first plugged it in. Very big upgrade over anything I've used before. Great country sound. [@]. Sounds great acoustic jamming and for large venues alike.

      Awesome!

      By 

      from Dallas, TX

      Comments about The Realist RV Pro Series 4/4 Size Acoustic-Electric Violin:

      I received my Realist RV Pro 5-string today. Played it this evening for open mic, absolutely awesome. Excellent resonance, warm, clear sound, easy to adapt coming from a 4-string fiddle. Tried it direct to amp and with a pre-amp (L.R. Baggs Paracoustic DI). Excellent tone, good for real violin sound amplified with a folk band as well as great effects response in alternative rock band. Very happy/satisfied with the purchase. Came in a nice Realist Pro case. Original strings were slightly oxidized but I changed them immediately to my preferred D'Addario Helicore (except for the C string). I absolutely recommend it!
