I just got a Cecilio CEVN-2 electric violin, and noticed that when using the headphones there's a pretty loud background static noise. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this / if this is normal with this violin? Just wondering if perhaps I got a faulty one. Thanks in advance.

Did you try it with different headphones?

You will have to eliminate all of the places that can generate static, until you narrow it down to one place.  I've had this issue often with electric guitars.  It's usually the cord, not the guitar -- but occasionally it has been (like a soldered connection that has gone bad at the jack).  

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright

Yes I tried it with three pairs of headphones (low, med, slightly higher quality) and my computer speakers, so I think the problem has to do with the jack. I found a decently priced headphone amplifier, so I am going to try that out soon. I tested the line out with headphones, and even though the mono output only produces sound in one side of the headphones, the sound quality is much better and much more clear.

Did you get the violin from Fiddlershop?
If so, just send us an email and we'll work it out.

No, I got some other stuff from Fiddlershop, but I'm in Canada so getting the violin off Amazon just had faster/free shipping. I contacted Cecilio and am waiting to hear back.  If I can get proper audio out of the line out then I'm not sure if it'll be worth dealing with taking the time sending it back to get a new one (and not knowing if another one will have a different, more hindering problem). Thanks for your help though!

We just exchange it and never charge the customer a penny. It ends up costing us one way shipping sometimes but we do it for the customer service. Even to Canada. If there is a fault with the product, we take care of it. Others will vouch for that. :)
