I have been on the hunt for a great acoustic/electric violin setup for years. After tirelessly trying just about every violin pick-up out there, I finally got my hands on a DuShane Deluxe 4-string and couldn't be happier! The violin itself is setup great and has a nice smooth and rich tone. The pickup is very natural sounding and barely needs any EQ adjustments (something that every other pickup I tried desperately needed!). This new axe will definitely be a part of my gig rotation anytime I need that extra volume boost without compromising tone and playability.

And from an early customer, and the DuShane's namesake:

Gary, this fiddle is my new best pal. It works beautifully. I played 3 plugged-in gigs in a row last week - first a contra dance, then a Cajun dance for which I tuned down a full step, then an outdoor concert with a singer-songwriter, tuned back up to regular tuning. The fiddle adapted to the different atmospheric conditions, held its tuning perfectly (which is unheard-of) and sounded great whether through my amp or direct from my DI to the sound board. We compared it on the Cajun gig to the other fiddler's Baggs set-up, and everyone could clearly hear that my violin was superior. No "bite" with bow changes, just clean, balanced violin sound across all 4 strings. Plus it has a clear, sweet voice acoustically, is set up just right to play easily, and is pretty to look at. I love it. Thank you! - Mary DuShane
