Hi everyone out there (:

I have been playing the violin for about two years now. I'm going to be moving to college soon, and since my roommates most likely wont appreciate being disturbed by me practicing and i've always wanted an electric violin, i decided to go for it. Problem is that im completely lost on this subject and i really dont know what to go for? I can only afford to spend about a 1000 dollars give or take and it needs to be one i can buy in the EU as the customs almost doubles the expenses if i buy from places like the US. What would you guys recommend? Thanks in advance for any tips and suggestions (:

Yamaha SV-130 is a great choice plus it has built-in reverb and a high quality pre-amp. IOW, everything you need built right into the instrument. If you like to play along with music or tracks you can use the aux in jack.

I realize you'll be buying it in Europe but here is the instruments link on our shop for more information. The price is MAP (minimum advertised price) which means that noone is allowed to advertise a cheaper price.

There is another problem with buying from the states which is the warranty. An instrument bought here is only warranted here rather than at any authorized Yamaha dealer. It's easy enough though to find a dealer though.

Thanks a lot for the fast answer! I had been looking into the yamaha SV-130 too, so i guess i wasn't completely off (: Would you (or anyone else for that matter) recommend any bows in particular for electric violins? I have no idea whatsoever as to what i should look for in a good, reasonabled priced bow :/ I have been looking around myself too, but i feel lost in it pretty fast.

What is your budget for the bow?

That's a no brainer then. The CEVN by Cecilio.

There are four different styles and a bunch of colors to choose from as well.

CEVN-1

CEVN-2

CEVN-3

CEVN-4
