As a classical player for over 45 years, I never thought I'd be playing jazz and rock. When a couple of my buddies asked me to sit in with their band, knowing that all I played was classical music, I knew I was in trouble. Pushing myself well beyond my comfort zone, and after some classes and improvisation sessions, I joined their band and quickly realized I needed an electric. In my role as product manager at SHAR, I've had countless opportunities to try many electric violins, but usually found them harsh and difficult to play - they just didn't seem to have been created by violinists. Collaborating with a traditional violin workshop, the SHAR Archtop Electric emerged. It sounds like a classical violin, except loud when you need it to be! It's reliable and easy to play because the setup is excellent (we do that right here at SHAR). People in the audience always tell me it sounds great. Who am I to disagree? If you're a classical player thinking about an electric violin, this fiddle will help make the transition easy.

- Val Jaskiewicz, SHAR VP of Merchandising, Violinist

A modern fiddle for modern players, the Shar Archtop Electric Violin features a Shadow pickup and built-in preamp, tone and volume controls, custom scroll, Helicore strings, Wittner tailpiece with 4 built-in fine tuners, contoured body style for lightweight construction (1.1 lbs), and a cutaway treble bout for easy access to the higher registers for all of your favorite Stephane Grappelli licks. High output electroics and a mellow tone make this the perfect jazz box for the gigging fiddler seeking a more exciting look that still pays homage to the violin tradition.
