Viper Support System
The unique Viper support system combines a guitar-style strap with an adjustable locking chest support for a totally hands-free playing experience. The support system replaces the need for a shoulder rest and chin rest and affords you the ability to sing, move, run, jump, clap, interact with the audience…whatever!
Barbera Hybrid Pickup
The Barbera Hybrid pickup bridge integrates separate transducers for each string. Barbara bridges produce exceptional tone with strong, balanced output. Great for "clean" acoustic styles, and ideal for use with high-gain effects or in high-volume settings.
Frets are intended to help ensure that violinists playing in loud environments (e.g. rock band with guitar and drums) can play in tune even when they can’t hear themselves particularly well. Frets also give the fingerboard a visual component that some players find creatively helpful and assist in transposing finger patterns into different keys.
Wood Violins standard frets are what we call “locator” frets, because they provide a visual and tactile means of locating a pitch on the fingerboard but, unlike guitar-style frets, they are somewhat flattened and do not “break” the string. Therefore, you place finger on top of the fret to play in tune. This clever design also means that vibrato and glissando are not inhibited by the raised fret. Mark Wood’s patented dot pattern aids in finding 5th, Octave, 12th and other important positions on the fretboard.
