No matter how you use the Hidersine HEV2 electric violin, it will always deliver a fantastic tone. If you need an instrument where you can practise in near silence, then simply plug in a pair of headphones. Thanks to the high-quality pick-ups, the HEV2 will sound just like a traditional violin, enabling you to practise in confidence, without disturbing those around you. However, the fun doesn't stop there...
If you're more of a loud and proud musician, then the HEV2 will let you crank it up! Plug it into an amplifier, turn it up to 11, and jam out to your favourite music. For even more tone control you can plug the electric violin into a chain of guitar pedals, or even into your computer so you can record and customise your sound by adding a variety of digital effects.
A violin for all
Although the HEV2 violin is a fantastic instrument for students, it can also be used by all string players - no matter what the standard. Being a Hidersine violin, you can be assured that it's built to the highest standard. And although the violin is not a traditional shape, the HEV2 has a traditional scale and construction of an acoustic violin, so any player can pick it up and play immediately.
More proficient players can choose the HEV2 as a backup or additional tool in their musical arsenal, choosing to use the Hidersine violin as an experimentation tool. Or perhaps you fancy busking, but don’t fancy taking your vintage violin out on the streets. Just grab a small amp and your HEV2 and you’re ready to go!
Contemporary look, traditional heart
Although the Hidersine HEV2 is a modern-looking violin, it is built to the same exacting standards as an acoustic instrument of the same level. The body is made of birch, which helps produce a good resonant tone when amplified. The birch body, however, has a veneer of flamed maple on the top and back which really enhances the aesthetics of the violins.
The pegs, fingerboard, and chinrest are made of genuine ebony. The use of ebony has long been a mark of a quality violin, as ebony is an excellent hardwood which can withstand the strain of high tension strings for a very long time. Therefore, not only do the fittings look and feel authentically traditional, they will last a lifetime of wear - unlike those instruments that use inferior wood, painted black to look like ebony.
Your playing, louder
Using a Piezo pickup located under the maple bridge of the violin, the Hidersine electric violin will reliably capture every nuanced detail of your playing style, whether audible externally through an amplifier or played discreetly through headphones. On one side of the instrument are the outputs - a 6.35mm large jack output for use with most instrument amps, and a 3.5mm mini-jack for use with headphones. On the other side is a preamp, where volume is controlled along with bass and treble EQ controls. The battery compartment for the preamp is located in the back of the instrument, and this requires a PP3 (square) 9v battery to operate.
