The StingRay violin is as practical as it is eye-catching. The compact body has a lightweight and comfortable feel that allows musicians of all ages to play with ease. Removing heavy electronics such as preamps and leaving the essentials like pickups, volume knob, and output jack enables the SingRay SVX5 to be lighter and more comfortable to play, especially for long stage sessions.
The StingRay’s classic neck shape will feel familiar to existing violin players, ensuring easy skill transference. The SVX5’s unique supports allow you to play in the traditional neck position, as well as around your waist. These shaped rests make the StingRay ideal as a crossover instrument for guitarists.
The poplar body produces a resonant and controlled tone so that every note is voiced accurately. The StingRay’s versatility and ease of use makes it ideal for live musicians who want to focus on their performance. For a more traditional feel, this model has a regular shaped fingerboard. Constructed from specially selected ebony, the fingerboard is shaped to match modern orchestral standards.
The Tru-Tone pickup is known for defining the electric violin sound.
Perfectly suited for live environments, the Tru-Tone pickups have a high output signal which is ideal for guitar amps. The frequency balance focuses on high-end clarity, while tightening the midrange for a stable, more natural sound. The Tru-Tone pickups are a passive system, making them ideal for live use as they don’t require batteries. The pickup is placed discreetly under the bridge for a clear signal transfer that registers the violin’s body resonance.
Included with the StingRay is a lightweight fitted case to protect your violin when not in use. The exterior of the case is lined with an unassuming black cover, and features a large pocket which is ideal for accessories. The case is sealed with a robust zip, and for added protection has a velcro strap. Capable of carrying up to two bows, the interior of the case also features a smaller pocket for even more accessories.
