This Stagg electric violin is a fantastic option for anyone wanting to stand out from the crowd. It offers the player the opportunity of playing 'silently' with headphones (included), a particular benefit for beginners. Alternatively you could attach it to a guitar amp and let rip by adding distortion, or put the sound through guitar effects like delay or chorus to explore the possibilities of making new sounds.
The Stagg electronic violins have a built in volume control and 2 band EQ to give you finger tip control over your sound. As you would expect, the violin features 4 quality tuning pegs as well as a tailpiece with built in fine tuning adjusters and a comfy chin rest. An internal headphone preamp with a minijack output allows you to practice at home in silence, while a 6.3mm jack main output allows you to plug in to an amp or computer for performance or recording respectively.
One particularly novel feature of the Stagg silent violin is the MP3 input. This allows you to plug in an iPod or MP3 player and hear the music, along with your own playing, through the headphones.
This striking solid bodied, full size instrument comes in a glossy black finish on laquered maple, but is also available in a whole range of colours including honey, metallic blue, metallic red, pink, transparent blue, transparent red and violin burst. Included in the outfit is a hard moulded case with carry strap, bow, rosin, headphones, 1/4" jack lead and 9V battery.
This violin can cater to all levels of the violin market. From students seeking private practice to professionals who want to stand out from the crowd, the EVN44 is a portable and fun instrument for all.
