Comments about Barcus Berry Vibrato-AE Series Acoustic-Electric Violin:

Always wanted an electric violin but didn't want to break the bank. This was the perfect in between point. Violin is a beautiful vibrant color, well done finishing gloss with great craftsmanship of the entire instrument. Pegs are ever so slightly loose and may require a little more pushing in while tuning but otherwise works well. Stock strings are okay but would highly recommend replacing with higher quality strings for better sound. Used in two shows, one was a rock performance playing Devil Went Down to Georgia and sound was excellent (per crowd) with stock strings and next was a more artistic and orchestrated performance, sounded even better with higher quality strings. Practices are great with or without amp. Would purchase another one in a heartbeat.
