Electric violins are some of the coolest and most underrated instruments out there. Mainly because for decades, orchestral musicians were under the old notion that electric violins should sound like traditional wooden violins.
Now we're not bashing traditional wooden violins. As classically trained musicians ourselves, we love the rich timbre of traditional wooden violins! It's a timeless sound that is still very much used in many genres of music today.
However, that doesn't mean an electric violin isn't good simply because it doesn't sound like a traditional wooden violin. It's a different instrument with its own unique sonics and features.
After all, we don't often hear guitarists commenting how their electric guitars don't sound as nice as their acoustic guitars!
In this article, we'll be putting aside old notions and focusing on some ofthe coolest things you can do with an electric violin.
As always, if you have any questions about these instruments, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're more than happy to help!
