electric violin was born in 1995 with the realization of the
prototype as the grunge model.
This was the original drawing! From the first orders on customers
preferred the classic model. The grunge model is somewhat
heavier because of the metal tuning machines but thanks to
their position near the shoulder of the player they don't
add weight to the neck of the instrument and the grunge model
plays quite comfortable.
The grunge model is not part of our standard productline anymore
but as I still like this shape very much I continue to build
it as a custom model.
is available in 4 or 5 string versions.
The violins of the CETVS
line are available in various colorations such as green or
blu tones or more classical brownish amber tones. We preferrably
use transparent colors not to cover the wood structure. You
can see some of them in the photogallery
The custom models:
Either for my own satisfaction or on customers request I realized
some custom designed instruments. On the violin the scroll
is that part without a strictly technical purpose so it's
free to be designed as the artist likes.
A major price will be charged for custom instruments.
