Our Revolutionary Internal Pickup authentically amplifies the complete and true tone of each and every instrument we offer.
Acoustic Electric Strings is the creative inspiration of Gary E. Bartig...
...designer of the Eminence Portable Upright Bass , and the Dahlia® 5-String Acoustic Violin.
After 8+ years working to design the optimal electric violin, it's clear that the best sounding electric violin is an amplified acoustic violin. Our custom internal pickup FAITHFULLY AMPLIFIES the acoustic tone of each violin WITHOUT ALTERING its acoustic tone. It's the best of both worlds!
The violins we offer are selected from manufacturers the world over for their superior tone, workmanship, woods, and value. Once here in our Minneapolis, Minnesota shop, Gary removes the top from each violin and installs his custom internal pickup. The result is an affordable amplified acoustic violin that serves both the student and the professional player.
Audio clips on each instrument page allow you to judge the quality of tone, both with and without the pickup. All models are also available without a pickup.
