Sleek and Understated

The sleek spruce top offers an understated natural look finish with beautiful inlaid purfling. This is a violin that looks as good as it sounds. 

Quality Sound

The quality of the strings is one of the factors that has the greatest impact on the sound the violin produces. The playability, sound and quality of a violin all depend on the strings that it’s fitted with. We only use the best quality strings for our instruments, including those designed for beginner musicians. We want to enable you to sound good, right from your very first note. 

The McNeela Premier Student Violin features a variety of quality tonewoods which produce a strong, resonant tone and excellent response. These materials offer a clear, bright, powerful tone and plenty of volume.

Electro Acoustic

One of the most exciting features of the McNeela Premier Student Violin is its audio jack output. A pickup means volume is never an issue. Just plug in and play and control the volume and tone levels directly from the control panel.

An electric acoustic violin offers the best of both worlds. Electric violins offer huge scope for experimenting with sound. They are perfect for any dance, electronica, pop or rock enthusiasts out there. You can use them with loop pedals and other special effects, dousing them in reverb or turning up the distortion to really rock out. 

Electric violins offer a range of creative features for any violinist who is looking to expand their range.
