Made in Germany, this carbon fiber violin by Mezzo-Forte is designed and produced using state-of-the-art technology. This futuristic vision produces an instrument with sound quality comparable to wooden instruments while offering greater presence, projection, and ease of playing.
The Design Line has a deeper, and warmer sound than the Evo Line instruments, both acoustically and amplified. The passive pickup is elegantly built right into the bridge, and the cable runs through the inside of the instrument. The 1/4" jack is conveniently located on the side of the instrument, just above the shoulder rest notches.
The Design Line Acoustic Electric violin is the right choice from the practice room, to the concert hall, orchestra pit, fiddle circle, outdoor festivals, and weddings, to rocking the biggest stages in the world. You'll be ready for any gig!

About Mezzo-Forte violins:
The Mezzo-Forte design concept is to develop instruments for the 21st Century. Any measurements used in traditional violin making have been transferred in order to help the player feel immediately familiar with the instrument. Therefore switching between wood and Carbon Fiber should not be a problem.
From the beginning to the end, all instruments are made in Mezzo-Forte's workshop in Germany, and they set a high value on quality and making fantastic instruments.
All Mezzo-Forte instruments come with a certificate of authenticity and a unique serial number which makes them easy to identify.
