The McNeela Electric Violin is ideal for any level of player and will serve you well as either a performance instrument or a practice aid.

Plug your headphones directly into the pickup for a private practice session that no one else will hear, or use the lineout jack to connect to a speaker and crank up the volume and rock out to your heart's content.

Plug In & Play
With the McNeela Electric Violin volume is never an issue – in either direction! You can amplify your electric violin by simply plugging into a speaker. Alternatively, if you really want to learn to play the violin, but you’re worried about noise complaints, you can buy an electric violin and use headphones to practice silently. Your neighbours will thank you!
Electric violins are much quieter than a muted acoustic violin, producing little to no sound. Many acoustic players with no intention of ever performing on an electric violin will still invest one as a useful practice aid. Being able to practice fingering, difficult musical passages or bowing without waking sleeping babies or neighbours is an invaluable advantage.
Playing Made Easy
Did you know that it’s easier to produce a good sound on an electric violin? They typically require less heavy bowing as the strings react in a different way to those on an acoustic violin. You can also tweak the sounds on an electric violin using EQ dials.
It’s important to remember however that if you intend to keep up your acoustic playing, you should practice on both instruments to maintain good technique. Your bowing technique can suffer if you don’t return to your acoustic instrument occasionally to practice.
If you want to experiment with new exciting sounds, explore new genres and have fun with loop pedals and different effects, then the electric violin is definitely the right choice for you. Electric violins offer huge scope for experimentation, offering a range of creative features. You can use them with loop pedals and other special effects, dousing them in reverb or turning up the distortion to really rock out. They're perfect for any dance, electronica, pop or rock enthusiasts out there - though of course you can still use them to play Traditional Irish folk or Classical music.
