The HEV3 electric violin by Hidersine is a great option for students looking to practice quietly, using headphones
Plugging the HEV3 into an amplifier, however, gives a huge range of options. Not only does your electric violin sound like an acoustic model, but you now have the ability to plug into a tablet or computer to record, practice or interface with software to add effects.
The top and back is made of Zebrawood laminate with Okoume used for the sides, whilst the fingerboard, pegs and chinrest are all made of genuine ebony.
A piezo pickup is located under the bridge, designed to capture every subtlety of your playing. On the side of the instrument is a 1/4" jack output for use with most amps, whilst a 3.5mm mini jack allows for easy use with headphones. The onboard preamp gives you controls for volume, bass and treble.
Supplied as an outfit, the Hidersine HEV3 comes complete with a good quality bow and protective carry-case.
