Classical violin

A beginner classical instrument has a slender neck and a much higher tension on the bowstring. The chin rest on a quality violin is designed so the violin is not dropped when a position is changed into and it also helps the user to hold the neck much more comfortably. A good rosin and bowstring are required in order to achieve the best, musical sound with a beginner violin.

One of the most important string instruments in an orchestra, the violin is capable of producing a range of tones and melodies, it's no wonder that the orchestra leader is always a violinist, leading the way with his bow.

Electric violin

An electric violin does not have F holes, producing sound by using pickups to amplify the vibrations on the string. They can even be distorted to achieve a different sound. Various accessories can also be used in order to delay the sound of the violin or add reverb.

This is normally done in the form of a pedal, however, it can also be done via the amplification. A violin outfit comes with the bag and a basic selection of accessories, however, it is possible to find more upgraded accessories on eBay. B

You may be a beginner now, but with the right student violin, a good set of strings and plenty of practice, you'll be playing all the greats in no time.
