Review Videos

The Realist Acoustic-Electric 5-string Violin is a true acoustic instrument that amplifies like an electric one! The first high-quality acoustic violin with an integrated Realist pick-up™ and volume control.

  • A fully functional acoustic violin carved from fine woods
  • On-board Realist Transducer engineered to amplify the subtleties of the violin’s acoustic sound clearly
  • Discreet volume knob to allow for on-stage control
  • Set up with Thomastik-Infeld Vision strings

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 into the Realist Violin’s acoustic body.

    Thoughtful Design
    The input jack is built into 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 into 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 lusters 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.
