Glasser AEX Carbon Composite Ac. / Elec. Violin
Glasser Carbon Composite Outfit Review
The Glasser Carbon Composite Acoustic Electric violin combines the advanced technology of the acoustic instrument with state of the art electronics by Bartolini. This allows for the instrument to be played either acoustically or plug in to the Glasser Swordtail active chinrest system. The instrument is set up with Larsen strings and Planetary Pegs.
Standard finish includes a dye coat over the carbon fiber weave, showcasing the distinctive carbon fiber look. By contrast, the AEX version uses a different paint/dye coating system to provide a distinctive, slightly pearlescent color to the body of the instrument.
- Available in 4/4 only.
- 9 pearlescent color options
- Carbon composite body is super durable and scratch resistant
- Dramatically reduce the risk of cracks or open seams
- Extreme outdoor temperatures are not a problem
- Play it in the rain or underwater - no worries!
- Planetary Pegs (geared ratio pegs)
- 5 fine-tuners built into tailpiece
- Bartolini preamp requires 2 AAA batteries

I LOVE my Glasser AEX VIOLIN!!! Shipping was quick, it was all set up with great strings (I just had to tune it), easy on my fingers AND it just feel good to play - didn't take me very long to get great tone! I would recommend it to everyone to try. I wasn't even sure I was going to have any luck playing a Violin again. I hadn't even touched one since I was in 4th Grade! While I was at it, figured I might as well start right out with a 5-string since I love Bass (but not a big Viola) - can only get easier, right? Okay, I've had this Glasser Violin for 3 weeks and I'm having a RIOT! I use a shoulder rest (which wasn't allowed when I was a kid) and haven't even used an amp, yet. I can only play a few Irish tunes with flourishes, "Game of Thrones" and I can almost follow along with Cecile Corbel's song "En La Mar" well enough to not embarrass my family, but I'm having FUN! During my research on Violin and Bow care/use, I learned Bows make more difference than I knew possible - so I ordered the Fiddlerman Carbon Fiber Weave Bow to compliment my Gunmetal Glasser AEX Carbon Composite Violin & I LOVE IT, too! Even I can tell the difference between this Bow and the wood one I had borrowed. Why'd I choose Carbon Composite? First of all, Michigan weather SUCKS (dry, damp, repeat) - Second, I am blessed with a bunch of sticky-fingered, drooling Grandkids and I don't want to have to worry about anything other than keeping little fingers off my Bow hair. I got durability AND good sound! I'm so glad I bought this quality, easy to care for, Violin - also, the great Video Reviews helped a lot when I started to research which one to try. I understand why a professional may want wood, but this Violin sounds great & reviews I've come across say it sounds even better with an amp. So, can't wait to see what I can do with it after a few months or a year! THANK YOU FIDDLERSHOP!!!
Wonderful. You shopped quickly. The violin was well packaged. It was as described. Thanks. Violin is delightful. Notes stand out more specifically. We already have professional violins prior to this, and an electric violin. But the quality of this 5 string is amazing
Sounds GREAT!!! This should be my last violin I own unless you have an acrylic violin that lights up as you play it.
This purchase was my third experience with this fantastic shop. The Fiddlershop family is above average when it comes to a personal touch. I would recommend anyone looking for quality service and top of the line instruments to look here first. I’ve had nothing but excellent success with these wonderful people. If I could give 10 stars, I would. You will not be disappointed with this business. John Tomasko
