The name "electric blue" originally represented a pale cyan blue, but over time its meaning shifted, lending the electric blue moniker to brighter, more saturated hues, lighter than cobalt, but darker and much richer than azure. This particular shade is most often called iridescent electric blue, not because it's actually iridescent, but because it's so fully saturated that it almost seems to glow from within, giving it the feel of an iridescent color. A similar color has been used on solid-body electric violins from Zeta, MSI, and others -- new it's available on this gorgeous new high-gloss electric blue Concert Deluxe violin from Wood Violins.
The Wood Violins Tru-Tone pickup system gives the Concert Deluxe a strong, open tone. It sounds convincingly like your acoustic violin, only louder, which makes it a great instrument for louder bands playing "acoustic" styles, like bluegrass, Celtic, or country.
The Concert Deluxe violins are equipped with the Wittner FineTune planetary pegs. They have the look of traditional friction pegs, but they don't react adversely to changes in temperature and humidity, so tuning is a breeze. The instrument has a black metal volume knob,conveniently located in the C bout, and and output jack is installed in the rib of the bass-side lower bout. Includes a dart-shaped foam core case.
