How do you like:
The violin is made by a luthier, with good strings (Averna money), a tailored Despiau bridge, the bow is also good, the plugs are also very well prepared and held in place and are easy to handle, and all that when you purchase from violin-cello.
Basically it's a violin ready, no need to change half of the items or switching to a luthier to do set before play.
There is a built in pre amp violin, powered by a 9V battery.
Side outlets, 2 jacks:
- A stereo headphone jack 3.5: compatible with all headphones, it is placed under the violin, and not a problem because instead positioned about opposite the bridge, so I can position the shoulder as I see fit even with the headphones connected. Level quality with good headphones you can enjoy the sound of the violin.
- A 6.35 to connect me to a guitar amp, in my case on a multi effect boss gt 100 connected to a mixer with amp and pedal studio monitors. Next sound quality, excellent sound, but fun. 6.35 The jack is located on the left side, no problem connecting or crossing cable.
