Plug 'n Play™ 4-string Electric Violin Outfit

Instrument: Violin
Level: Beginning

Play

Strong and Mellow Acoustic Sound, Professional Grade

The Plug 'n Play electric violin just keeps getting better and better! We worked with a professional multi-genre violinist on what pros want: New geared pegs work much more reliably and smoothly than friction pegs under hot stage lights, eliminating the need for fine adjusters and making tuning a breeze. We also lowered the string action to allow for fast and soft fingering. We did this by improving the quality of the ebony fingerboard, bridge, and strings, performing the entire setup and tonal output adjustment at SHAR. Finally, we upgraded the electronics, for far more output. The new Plug 'n Play Concert violin sounds clean, mellow and complex, like an acoustic violin, but now that drummer has met his match on stage! Of course, you can also tone it down... way down, by plugging the included earbuds directly into your Plug 'n Play violin, so as not to bother your neighbors when practicing. In fact, transitioning from your acoustic to your Plug 'n Play couldn't be easier – because of its clever design, you can even use your favorite shoulder rest. 

Outfit includes Toshira case (TC100), Brazilwood bow (KVB), mini rosin, cable with 1/4" jack, earbudss and 9-volt battery. Choose from Ebony Black, Sangria Red, True Blue, or Titanium White. 4/4 size.

What Fun!

I just received this Electric Violin Outfit today, and for the most part, am delighted! The case is lightweight, new, and has convenient straps for either carrying over the shoulder or as one would carry a backpack. It serves the purpose. The bow is lightweight, new and a tad bit short in my estimation, but it works fine for the setup. Be prepared to apply rosin - which is conveniently included too. Also included were two 9 volt batteries, ear-bud headphones and an amp cord. The electric violin, for nearly every category, is all that I had hoped it would be. The dimensions are very close to an actual full size acoustic violin and it is quite simple to go from one instrument to the other without any major hand/wrist/finger adjustments. That is fabulous for those who may also be working on their classical-training studies, but who also wanting to play electric for different styles of music. Fiddling, jazz, pop and rock styles will all be readily at hand using this instrument. Now - I have one complaint about the instrument. When I first began playing it, I was concerned that it was malfunctioning. Eventually, I was able to determine that as I moved while playing, my shoulder was inadvertently moving the on/off button! The easy fix was to attach a Kun shoulder rest - but - one shouldn't be forced to use a shoulder rest because the problem should be non-existent. Again - I want to emphasize that I think this is a great setup for those of us who want to step into the world of electronic violins without a huge investment, but if you run into the problem I encountered, before returning the instrument, ensure that you're not accidentally turning it off with your shoulder while playing. And if you don't have one already, order a shoulder-rest while placing your order so that you can truly enjoy your new instrument immediately.

Very happy with my new Shar electric violin

I just received my Shar electric violin model SEVT. I could not be happier. The ebony fingerboard and pegs looked great. The finish was flawless. Nice thin bridge cut just right. The weight was much lighter than my other electric. Overall, I'm glad that I found out about Shar music and will be back again.

Wonderful Value. Loads of Fun

I purchased this electric violin after considering an electric purchase for over 1 year. As an acoustic violin player the biggest hold up on a purchase was price. I had been looking at models in the $800-$1,300 range and just couldn't get myself to spend the money for fear that I wouldn't really like an electric violin. This Shar model offered me the ability to try an electric violin without spending a great deal of money. I've only had the violin for 1 week but will do my best to give a helpful review. The first impression fresh out of the box was that of being happy with its visual appearance. I purchased a white model and am very happy with the visual aesthetics. The second impression was equally satisfying when I discovered how easy it is to play. I had very little adjustment to it. The weight and string height make for enjoyable playing. The case is entirely adequate considering the amount of money I paid for the entire outfit. The bow is okay. The ear buds are worthless as they don't even fit in my ears but I wasn't buying this for the ear buds, the bow or even the case. I was buying the instrument. I do not have another electric to compare this to but I do enjoy it and certainly enjoy the sound it produces. I look forward to using this electronic model for playing out at certain venues and here at home when I want to change up the sound a bit. This is a wonderful value and a great way to get your feet wet with an electric instrument. Even my 11 year old wants to play it where as he wasn't too interested in my acoustic violin.

Good but not great

I needed an amplified violin for some of our group's performances. Didn't want to modify my violin by adding a pickup. This electric violin seemed priced right for an occasional use. It's bridge is shaped differently from my violin so bow angles are different. Something you need to consider. Also the strings that come on the violin are very poor. The G & D strings buzz very badly which is carried thru the amplifier. I'll have to change the strings before I would use it in a performance. Not sure at this time if I will keep it or return it. Remember you will not get the same sound from this violin as you do from your acoustic violin. In conclusion, you get what you pay for. This violin is half the price of better known electric violins.

Seldom have I been so delighted by an online purchase. You will not believe how much fun it is to play this electric violin. This one comes with everything you need except the amplifier (and an inexpensive one is available for a little more money). I plugged mine into my keyboard amp and played around with effects and shapes until the wee small hours.

Quality for the money and a great starter electric

I just bought this violin and have had it for only about 10 days. I am going to play a St. Pat's dinner party (you know what they are like!) and that is the main reason I got it. The quality for the money is unsurpassed. Play around with the bass and treble knobs and hear yourself from a distance and you will be impressed. Finally I can go out and play at parties and taverns and not worry about my very expensive acoustic. If you want an electric, but this one!

$200 electric violin

I have had my electric violin for a few weeks now. I am very happy with it so far. I purchased this electric violin because I will be traveling a lot and I did not want to bring my expensive acoustic violin with me to practice. This way if the violin gets lost or damaged I won't be as upset because I only spent $200 dollars on it. This is an excellent deal if you are just starting out, or if like me you need a backup violin for traveling or taking it to places where you wouldn't want to take a more expensive instrument. The violin sounds decent, everythings on it works. It is quieter than an acoustic violin but not completely silent. Hopefully I will be able to practice now in the middle of the night without disturbing anyone. It came with a pretty nice case. The bow and the little headphones it came with are low quality but that's not a big deal, you can always upgrade the bow and buy a better pair of headphones later. Overall I am satisfied with this violin.

Great way to get into electric violin.Price was good bought on sale so even better.Really good sound for price,nice to play,bridge is shaped just right string action good. For anyone who wants to try electric this is a good way to begin.I use it with a multi effect pedal so it's even more fun. The only problem is it is a bit heavy but I'm older and have arthritis so it probably won't bother a young player.Great way to have fun would recommend!
