The Realist Violin Review
A truly acoustic instrument that amplifies like an electric! The first high-quality acoustic violin with an integrated Realist pick-up™ and volume control.

A carved wood violin, The Realist Violin produces a sweet and rich sound and features a finely crafted, quality spruce top and elegantly molded maple ribs and back. The patented Realist technology that has made The Realist Transducer the world’s most respected pick-up for acoustic instruments is built in to the Realist Violin’s acoustic body.

- Improved bridge design and projection
- Cleaner neck design
- New top graduation and thicknessing
- Richer, more resonant textured varnish
- Features Frantique varnish
The input jack is built in to the back, which is crafted to accommodate the added weight and material. In its position at the violin’s corner block and the back, the jack is easily accessed, and allows the patch cable to be dressed away out of sight and out of the player’s way. The player’s bow arm is free to move unimpeded and the instrument’s acoustic sound is unaffected. The Realist Violin’s volume control, integrated in the treble-side rib, is ingeniously camouflaged in the color of the violin’s varnish.
Unparalleled Amplified Sound Color and Texture
The built-in Realist Transducer delivers all of the natural luster of the instrument’s true sound. The violin retains its organic qualities when amplified or acoustic, so there’s no need for the player to adapt to it.
30 mm total and 5.5 mm between strings. Has a very familiar feel to a conventional violin.
I bought one of the 5-String Realist violins from fiddlerman a couple months ago. I love it. I play it almost 100% acoustic but have had some fun playing around with it amplified. Acoustically I think it sounds much nicer than my upper-end student violin. Its tone is more robust probably helped by the C string) and it is much more friendly when being played all the way up to the fingerboard or down to the bridge. It came with good quality Vision strings.
