The Electric Violin Shop staff is always on the lookout for tools, devices and technology that suit the strings player, enhance their performance and expand their expressive palette. Let's face it though--there aren't many purpose-made effects for bowed strings. Therefore, we spend a lot of time testing guitar technology with electric violins in order to be able to find those that work best and offer them in our catalog, hopefully saving electric violinists lots of time and money having to do the same for themselves! We recently dipped our toes into legendary guitar effects maker Electro-Harmonix's catalog of guitar electronics. Electro-Harmonix is a New York-based company that makes high-end electronic audio processors. It is best known for a series of popular guitar effects pedals introduced in the 1970s. The company continues to innovate and makes some really solid, great sounding effects. We found that the following units, all of which we now offer in our catalog, work great with electric bowed strings and fulfill common needs of many strings players:
Choosing an electric violin from the many available models can seem like a daunting decision-making process. There is a huge range of prices, shapes, colors and features that can be enough to make anyone’s head spin! Not to worry…Electric Violin Shop is here to radically simplify your choice by showing you how to narrow down your selection based these key considerations:
- What is your budget?
- What do you need (or want) out of your electric violin?
- What is your tone preference?
- What are your look, feel and style preferences?
By addressing this handful of considerations one by one, you can quickly narrow the selection of electric violins to a small number of instruments that fit all of your requirements. We are always available to assist you along the way and can be contacted at 866-900-8400 or by email at email@example.com.
