Vector Prodigy 4, Purple Transparent and Brown
The Vector Prodigy electric violin is one of the lightest electric violins on the market. In spite of its sleek, modern shape, it feels quite similar to your acoustic violin. Hand made in Nova Scotia by a single maker, the Prodigy electric violin is crafted from traditional tone woods. This particular Prodigy is finished in a vibrant, saturated purple transparent that looks great while showing of the maple top's figure. The lower bout and central spine are walnut brown.
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.
If you really love purple, this particular Prodigy is an especially nice shade of the royal hue. It took Nick Tipney a while to find a transparent purple stain with the rich, saturated look that he wanted. This color is about as vibrant a purple as you could find, while still being transparent, so that the color can highlight the figure of the maple top. On this particular Prodigy, the lower bout and central spine are finished in a warm walnut brown.
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.
