  2. Using the Roland GR-55 for MIDI Violin Performance & Recording

    **UPDATE** ZETA violins are now compatible with the Roland GR-55 using the ZETA 8-pin to 13-pin MIDI cable (sold separately).

    We get lots of calls and emails about MIDI violins. MIDI options for violins have been around for decades, but were only compatible with synthesizers that are now obsolete and only available on the used market. Also, latency and slower triggering made these MIDI violin systems less than ideal for most performers.

    We are pleased to announce that we now carry two violins that are compatible with a high quality, available and currently produced MIDI synthesizer. The Fourness Fuse, with its newly calibrated 13 pin MIDI jack, and Cantini violins, with their proprietary 8-pin to 13-pin adaptor cable, have passed our in-house testing and are for sale on our site for use with the Roland GR-55 synthesizer.

  3. Fourness Fuse: A Customer's Review and Testimonial

    As someone who swore by the sound and build of my Zeta Jazz Fusion 5-string violin for over ten years, I stayed loyal to Zeta through several years of what seemed to be their most difficult financial times and a lot of turnover within their shop.  I have to admit I was pretty bummed when Zeta closed down, but I first heard about Evan Fourness in October 2010 through a friend on the Fiddle Forum, so I got in touch with him immediately and I'm so happy I did.  Therefore, this review not only talks about the quality and superb craftsmanship of the instrument I purchased, but also of the great experience I had in dealing with Evan and the great customer service and personalized attention he gave me as a buyer of his product.
