Electric Violins

electric violinsElectric violins are becoming more and more popular. Typically, they are used by performers of jazz, pop, country, new age, etc. They are stringed instruments that are basically a cross between an electric guitar and an acoustic violin. An acoustic violin can be made into an electric violin by adding a pick-up that runs to an amp. Straight electric violins are available in many designs and colors. They can be made from a variety of materials and include the pick-up built into the instrument. Much like an electric guitar, they can also have a variety of effects such as reverb, delay, or distortion.
