Electric Violin Design by yuumei Electric Violin Design by yuumei
This is the electric violin that I designed for Frey to play in here Fisheye Placebo: Solo for the Self by yuumei :)

For those who are not familiar with electric violins, they work like an electric guitar which means the body doesn't amplify sound (that's done through an electric amplifier) so it can have many interesting shapes without affecting the sound. You can also play silently when it's not plugged in and I just love the idea of that.

There are various existing electric violins out there but this specific design doesn't exist.

I hope you don't mind, I made this:…
Uhm.. Hi, I guess-

Yesterday (actually.. About two hours and 19 minutes ago) was my 14th birthday and having played violin for more than a year now, I asked my dad for a new one as a birthday present. He asked me what kinda violin I wanted, then my mind went back to this, Frey's violin. I didn't think that it was possible but dad accepted my request.

I just thought for how long already that it'd be really cool for this to come to life, and so we looked for a luthier (someone who makes/repairs stringed instruments) and showed him this. If there's even the tiniest chance of the artist reading this, I'd like to ask for permission to make the Sound and Fury real.

I wish I design violins like this. XD
There's actually a luthier that lives in my area-- super nice guy, his name is John Jordan-- that could make electric violins.
It'd be cool to just go up to him and ask to make an electric violin based on the one your OC plays. :D

I would like to think that if W A M(ozart) :D were still alive, he would prefer the classical wooden ones above any other types- an oldschool fashion kind of guy.
Anyhow, futuristic instruments kinda scares ME alot,(electricity coupled directly to my beautiful neck) ;) BUT I really like the design of this fine violin.
Well done :)

I'm a violinist and I think this design is better than the Yamaha Silent violin.

Oh, how I would love to have a violin like this.  I am stuck with my boring wooden one, for now.

Someone needs to make this violin.
Whiterose283 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You should totally make these kind of violins. The world would go absolutely nuts!

wow this is very awesome
WOLFENSPLEEN Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Pretty violin, but I think the uppermost parts of the strings are too close together, so it would be difficult to play in real life.
Cat-S-Dragoness Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014  Student General Artist
That is one neat looking violin! Nice design!

I'd love to have an electric violin to play so I can practice without disturbing my roommate. She hates it when I play, so I'm down at the auditorium 24/7.

By the way, I really love this design! I was actually looking to tattoo a violin on myself. Would you mind if I used this?

whaaaa what a cool instrument and it looks so futuristic ^w^ 
nice design ^w^

This looks really similar to my electric violin tbh, only it is black and has some more details. I really love it! Would love to pimp mine like this.
Elmoren Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
Good design, somewhat similar to some existing electrics, but I guess the "We don't need the shape anymore, but for the sake of pointing out that this is a violin, let's draw some outlines and leave insides empty to underline the point" way of thinking is the coolest. 

I'd certainly prefer this to my SV-130's design, but the more similar looking ones are quite bad quality for playing. It seems that only NS-Design has gone to a radical change in the looks of electric violins. 

Converging with these points: There are surprisingly few notable producers of e-violins. There's Yamaha with it's SV-series (of 3 models), a couple of under $200-mark heaps for something other than playing, NS-Design, and a handful of small names you can only find in shops selling nothing but these (like Skyinbow). There would certainly be space for more on the market.

Have you seen the Zeta Jazz Fusion violin? Its so beautiful!

ARRRGGGHH AGREED. XD Seriously. Those rip-offs... OAO
Zombie-Skull Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I love the design, even if I don't play a violin it seems that I can't take my eyes off it. You said that this specific design doesn't exist, and you're right :D
But luckily I found a really really similar design here:…
hdjl Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2013
Oh... I would love an electric violin O.O
Vaporeon0274 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2013  Student General Artist

I was going to say! I feel like I have seen this kind of violin before, though whether it was electric or not I'm not sure. Lindsey Stirling used one in her Mission Impossible collab with the Piano Guys.


Anyway, thank you for educating us on musical instruments and creating beautiful art!

well, maybe not this exact design, but there are electric violins that do look like this... they're really cool
pinksheepyunnie Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
