Indulge your bass-er instincts, with a comfortable, ergonomically designed seven-string Jordan electric violin, that lets you play the full range of a string quartet, without switching instruments! This figured mahogany 7-string Jordan has a warm reddish brown color, and a section of crotch figure on the top; part of the board was cut from a spot where two branches came together.
The most surprising thing about John Jordan's seven-string electric violins is how easy they are to play. The wider fingerboard keeps your left hand from feeling too cramped, and the perfect bridge curvature and string height makes bow work easier than it ought to be, even on the thickest, low B-flat string. We recommend a CodaBow Joule extended-range violin bow
to get the most out of Jordan 7-string, but whatever bow you use, you'll find bowing this instrument easier than you'd expect.
A Barbera Twin Solid bridge provides a powerful output and rich, full sound. With a high quality amplifier, you will be shocked at the depth and richness of tone.
Choose a 7 string Jordan if you want a violin that also sounds like a viola, cello, and even a bass! Finding your way around on this instrument takes some getting used to, but the design of the Jordan 7-string make it seem way easier than it ought to be, and it's not an unreasonable size or weight! Tuned E-A-D-G-C-F-B flat, yet alternate tunings are possible also. Try E-A-D-G-C-G-C (tuning the lower 2 strings a step above their designed pitch) or E-A-D-G-C-D-A (tuning the lower 2 strings below their designed pitches).
Improvisers be warned - you will find yourself doing things you've never dreamed of!
Includes a nice oblong violin case.
