Electric Violin Features
This entry level electric violin will blow your mind! The Tower Strings Electric violin comes with a built-in pre-amp and pickup, powered by a 9v battery (included). Simply switch on and plug in headphones or go directly to an amplifier - nothing else is needed! The setup, accessories, and build is far above anything we have tested in this price range!

Here's a little background on my level of playing: I began playing when I was elementary and I played all the way till eighth grade. I had not played in over 20 years. During Thanksgiving weekend 2018 I decided to begin playing again. I am also tone deaf. When I decided to play again I begun on an old acoustic. My acoustic is a decent violin but it does have some issues due to age. So, with it having issues and my issues of tone deafness, I began to wonder if an electric violin would be better for me. After some research and watching the videos on Fiddlershop reviewing violins, I decided I was ready. The Tower Electric Violin is an excellent beginner/intermediate violin. It arrived about a week after ordering. It did come with all the items shown and it's a very solid quality piece. The headset it came with is a great tie over until a better headset can be bought. I found using an old Apple iPhone headset could do the job or, Dr. Dre Beats (the ones that do not have Bluetooth). I also bought an amp at my local instrument reseller. The sound generated by the instrument is sweet, and as shown in the video the tone & volume can be controlled by the dials located in the back. The bow sounds great, once it's been rosined and broken in some. One of the things to keep in mind is to be patient with the tuning. The pegs do slip a bit and it's very easy to over tune it. It took about 2-3weeks before the strings broke in the violin stayed in tune. If I do need to tune it the fine tuners do the job. What I have noticed since practicing on my Tower Violin, is that my intonation on my acoustic has improved. I still use my acoustic, BUT my primary instrument is now my Tower Electric. The price and quality of the insturment cannot be beat! NO REGRETS HERE! Thank you Fiddlershop
I was surprised by how fast this outfit shipped. Violin came in mint condition and mostly in tune, except for the E string, which would slide a lot when I tried to tune it. Taking out the peg and lubing it with graphite solved the problem. Violin is very quiet without headphones, and sounds great with headphones—it sounds just like a regular violin! Bow is meh, which is to be expected; I just ended up using one of my spare bows. It came with literally everything you could possibly need, from an 1/8 to 1/4 inch jack, a tuner, a cloth, straps, and more! Very pleased with my purchase. Would recommend to any violinist who is looking for a budget silent violin.
FANTASTIC! AMAZING! THE BEST EXPERIENCE!
As usual Fiddlershop is great to do business with. Nice setup, complete outfit including amp cable, ready to play after tuning and tilting the bridge back a little. I bought this to be quiet practicing, and I don't even need to turn it on to hear it well enough to practice. They were out of the next better tower when I ordered and with the controls more accessible, that would be better.
I purchased an electric violin for my son as a Christmas present. Since I placed the order just prior to Christmas I was told the violin may not arrive until 5-6 days after Christmas, however, they were able to get me the violin on the 23rd. More importantly, it was refreshing to speak with someone regarding the various options to consider when purchasing and I had follow-on post-sales support for a relatively trivial problem that I encountered.
