I purchased the Glasser AEX

I purchased the Glasser AEX Carbon Composite Electric Violin & accessories as a gift to an outstanding violinist. I have never heard a sweeter sound! A small brochure explaining the functions of the controls and care for the instrument would be helpful. It is a very impressive violin.

Makes practice possible anytime

Great resonance, versatile. LOVE the geared pegs. Larsen strings are easy to clean, sound excellent.

Not Traditional, But Not Bad

I have been looking into carbon fiber violins for some time. I’ve done quite a bit of digging and found very little in the way of reviews. I decided that in order to help those out there in the same position I would offer my thoughts. I first took the idea seriously when I spoke to a fellow musician that had used one on occasion. I asked his opinion and his reply “I tried NOT to like it, but I did”. This follows the train of thought that the time honored tradition of violin construction should be strictly adhered to. This also falls in line with the discussions of the planetary tuning pegs to replace wood. Being a long time woodworker myself and interested in luthierie I too felt that carbon fiber had no place in musical instruments. The practical side: I play in south Texas where the majority of gigs are outdoors. The heat and humidity can really mess with instruments of all kind. I never liked the idea of subjecting a traditional violin to those conditions. Being very familiar with carbon fiber in my work I decided to give the AEX a try. Carbon fiber is extremely strong and durable. I like the look of a traditional violin so this is an added plus. I didn’t want flashy colors so I chose the basic black. I doubt I will play the AEX in a purely acoustic situation, but I would. There isn’t a lot of projection so I’m not sure if it will cut through other instruments. Tone being highly subjective I don’t really mind the acoustic sound albeit a bit muffled. Plugged in and eq’d properly I’m happy with the tone (again subjective) when amplified. I have had the violin for a short time and have not performed with it to this point. I would not consider replacing my wood violin(s) with it, but it is a great option to have available. I feel better knowing that when the extreme summer heat returns I will have the AEX to press into service.
