Hidersine HEV3 Electric Violin
The HEV3 electric violin by Hidersine is an excellent option for students who wish to practise in silence, using headphones.
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 HEV3 is complete with a quality bow, and supplied in a rectangular protective case.
An instrument with many possibilities:
Hidersine’s HEV3 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 almost no 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 HEV3 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 HEV3 as an experimentation tool.
Contemporary look, traditional heart.
Although the Hidersine HEV 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 Zebrawood top and back with okoume 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 side of the instrument are the outputs – a 3.5mm jack output and a 6.5mm mini-jack for use with headphones.
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.

"It's a nice piece of kit for the price."
"Hidersine Electric Violin HEV3 Zebrawood Finish. A lovely instrument for the price. I chose this particular instrument because it's shape follows the traditional curves of the upper right side bout which fits with a traditional technique for playing in the upper register. It allowed me to carry on practicing and playing music with friends online. It plays very well after a little setting up straight out of the box. For near silent practise, just plug in some 'phones' and play away. Very pleasant to play. "
"The violin is great quality and is easy to tune, setup and play. Works great with the amplifier that I purchased with the violin and has a good quality bow. The style of the violin is impressive, heavier than my acoustic violin, but overall very good."
"Appears lighter than I had thought. This model is the best variant because of the position of the controls allow for a shoulder rest. Can't wait to cable it up."
"It's beautiful, our son is very excited to play it (it was bought for him) "
"I am very lucky. I can now finally practise without having to worry about disturbing the neighbouring flats!"
"Overall, a good quality product. it could be a little lighter, and the final staining around the neck could be better. "
"I'm amazed at how good this sounds for £190. It's very playable and looks great. It's a little heavier than an acoustic and I'd definitely recommend a shoulder rest. Overall I'm extremely happy with my Hev3."
"I'm pleased with this instrument, which is very good value for the price in my opinion. It sounds quite nice acoustically as well as through an amplifier... it's not a 'silent' violin. The only criticism I would have is that the action is rather too high for my liking, and I don't feel confident to make any adjustments. Otherwise, great!"
