If you're one of the many electric violinists who've been enthralled by the idea of a clear instrument, the 3Dvarius might be exactly what you've been looking for. Its transparent body give it a striking, dynamic appearance. Unlike many of the transparent electric violins on the market, nearly every part of the 3Dvarius is clear. From the chin rest to the fingerboard, everything except the Barbera bridge and the mechanical tuners is see-through.
Created using advanced 3D printing technologies, the 3Dvarius is then hand-finished in France by skilled craftsmen. Any excess resin from the violins, then cleaning and polishing the instruments before an ultraviolet curing process to initiate polymerization. UV polymerization reduces flaws or defects and eliminates the need for solvents. Finally, any surfaces that contact the strings or the body of the player are precision sanded for maximum playing comfort and purity of sound.
An excellent amplified tone is produced by the Barbera transducer bridge, which gives the 3Dvarius a powerful amplified sound. Rich and focused, it's a great instrument for any amplified "acoustic" style of music. It's also exceptionally well-suited for use with high-gain effects like distortion or overdrive, as well as in high volume settings where acoustic violins with a pickup or microphone are prone to feedback.
This 5-string 3Dvarius electric violin has a comfortable string spacing, and is a great player. Its construction makes for a lightweight, durable instrument that feels at home on your shoulder.
Price includes a custom hard shell case.
