This is my Merlin electric violin.
This violin (other than on stage) is most useful for my being able to practice late in the night at home or from my hotel room without being hindered by the feeling i could be annoying someone. The Merlin is made using maple & Spruce, as in the conventional violin Luthier tradition. It has been carefully cut away for weight loss with out loosing some of its natural acoustic value. I can practice well into the night with head phones on or just acoustic and still have that contemporary violin feel & sound.
