The Vector Prodigy is one of the best overall values in the electric violin market. Extremely lightweight and responsive, it is hand made of beautiful curly maple for the top and neck, and walnut for the spine and shoulder pad crescent. This is not a commercial product -- each Prodigy electric violin is hand-crafted by a caring maker. This is one of the most attractively-priced hand-made instruments available. This particular Prodigy is a 5-string model, with a transparent blue finish over the flamed maple of its top. It's a particularly rich and saturated blue; if you're a fan of the azure hue, you'll love the way this color highlights the flame of this violin's maple top.
Vector Prodigy electric violins have a strong, open tone, convincingly acoustic -- they're popular with players of acoustic styles that are transitioning into louder, larger bands, or playing at larger venues where amplification is a must. Although the maker recommends using a preamp with this violin, we think it sounds great when paired with a good acoustic amplifier -- call for our latest recommendation.
Nick Tipney of Vector was filmed for a segment on Discovery's popular "How It's Made"! Check out Electric Violin (How It's Made) on YouTube. The video features both the standard maple and walnut instrument and the teal and black version that EVS first suggested.
