Handcrafted European hybrid violin with plenty of high-end appointments.
For your on-stage playing, in-studio recording or home rehearsal time the Realist RV4Pe acoustic/electric violin delivers a clear and colorful tone that is even and balanced across all the strings.
Realist RV4Pe violin retains its organic qualities when amplified or acoustic, so there's no need for the player to adapt. Stylish and conveniently placed, the volume and tone controls make it easy for you to control and color your sound directly from the instrument. Realist's special transducer (designed by Ned Steinberger and David Gage) delivers all the natural luster of the instrument's true sound.
An integrated approach of instrument and pickup design has resulted in this violin's ability to deliver your sound, only louder. Because of this integrated design, there is virtually no amplification of stray sounds and very little chance of feedback.
This beautiful violin is handcrafted in Europe by skilled luthiers using premium choice Carpathian spruce tops, ebony fittings, a Despiau bridge, a Wittner Ultra tailpiece and Thomastik Infeld Vision strings. The round neck is very clean and comfortable to play. The finish (Frantique) is stunning and durable without sacrificing tone. The electronics feature top quality linear pots, custom knobs and a standard ¼" Switchcraft jack on the back housed in a custom aluminum housing.
Along with your Realist RV4Pe you will receive a robust plywood core vinyl covered oblong case with conveniently sized, well-located internal compartments. There is a one year parts and labor warranty. The Realist RV4Pe is a superb instrument you'll enjoy playing and hearing for many years.
