electro acoustic violin, 4 strings, pro model, volume and tone control, antique finish, made in EU
The new amplified-acoustic RV4e is made in Europe with fully carved Carpathian spruce, set up in New York in David Gage's workshop, featuring the same rich tone, volume knob, and trusted Realist pickup built into the body.
The Realist Violin looks toward a new future for the violin. Amplifying the violin should be a pleasure, not a compromise.
The input jack is carefully built into the back, where it’s easily accessed and allows the patch cable to be dressed away, out of sight and out of the player's way. The volume knob, integrated in the treble-side rib, is camouflaged in the color of the violin's varnish.
Unparalleled Sound Color & Texture
The built-in Realist Transducer delivers all the natural luster of the instrument's true sound. The violin retains its organic qualities when amplified or acoustic, so there's no need for the player to adapt. The pickup system is completely serviceable; the electronics are easily removed for repair without compromising the instrument's structural integrity.
