Hidersine HEV1 Electric Violin

The HEV1 electric violin by by Hidersine is an excellent option for students and established players who wish to practise quietly, using headphones to enjoy the full sound.

However, when plugged into an amplifier, the possibilities are endless. Not only will your electric violin sound like a regular acoustic instrument, but you could plug into your tablet or PC to record, or use third-party software to add countless effects.

Supplied as an outfit, the Hidersine HEV1 is complete with a quality bow, and supplied in a rectangular protective case.

An instrument with many possibilities:

Hidersine’s HEV1 delivers a fantastic tone when amplified or when using headphones, as it will sound just like a regular violin.
You want to practise without anyone else hearing? No problem, just pop on a pair of headphones or earbuds and play to your hearts content with minimal audible acoustic tone.
Want to play loud and proud? Then plug the violin into an amplifier and crank it up.
Want to experiment with your sound? Then use some guitar effects pedals or an app on your phone to add effects to your violin playing for awesome results.

Suitable for all levels of musician:

Although a fantastically useful tool for a violin student, the Hidersine HEV1 is not solely for use in this context.
As the violin is built to high standards any player of any standard can pick it up and play immediately.
Proficient players can choose this instrument as a backup or additional tool in their musical arsenal, choosing to use the HEV1 as an experimentation tool. 

Contemporary look, traditional heart.

Although the Hidersine HEV1 is a modern-looking violin, it is built to the same exacting standards as an acoustic instrument of the same level. 
The body has a Spruce top with maple back and sides. 
The pegs, fingerboard and chinrest are made of 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 with 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, Amplified:

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 the back of the instrument are the outputs – a 3.5mm jack output and a 3.5mm mini-jack for use with headphones, plus a 3.5mm mic input. 
The preamp has volume and tone 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.

Patrick, United Kingdom

"Its great and is easy to learn and play."

Mikael, Sweden

"I bought this violin for 'silent practice' so as to disturb my neighbours less. It has a pleasant tone when played through headphones and I like the appearance of the instrument. It's a little heavier and thicker than I expected, so for example, when I wanted to change the chinrest, I needed to buy a viola chinrest as my acoustic violin chinrest wouldn't fit over the end. It's also louder than I thought it would be - it's significantly quieter than my acoustic violin but my practicing definitely isn't 'silent'. But, all in all, I'm happy with my purchase."
