I have been using 5 of these violins in the last 5 years and having 2 right now with me. They have good quality sound, easy to use and convenient for gigs. I use a guitar wireless sysyem with it and they work perfect with each other. Just need some adjustment on the sound system. I used htem for both show as big as in MGM or as small as a 200 seat theater. Go fot it and you will see how it is. :)

This is not a horrible violin for the money, but I think I would look elsewhere. The biggest complaint would be the fine tuners which had to be replaced after six months. The ones that came with the violin were made of cheap metal and bent out of shape to the point where the tuning screw did not work. I bought new tuners from a supplier which were much better quality and was back in business. The tone is a tad flat.

      Comments about Silver Creek SC3B Acoustic-Electric Violin:

      This is an instrument you can grow into. Having the option of playing it with or without the pickup provides flexibility, and since it has great sound, a good choice for a start-up band.

          Rarely am I so impressed with a company or its product to be compelled to leave a review, but I had to in this case. My ordering process (9 items- great potential for mistakes)with a phone rep of Musician's Friend went like clockwork, thanks to his attention to detail, competence and no-nonsence approach. The confirmation was received immediately, the processing and shipping was fast and my order was accurate. The SC3EL violin looks gorgeous with the sound to match. As already mentioned in the other reviews, it's a great value. The rosin, found in the case it came with, was a surprise. My friends fell in love with this violin as well and I would absolutely recommend this instrument and this company to anyone.

          Great Violin to start out with, that you won't outgrow for a long time. Got it in Honey Blond looks great for the price. Sound quality matches the looks, even with the original strings!
          Fine tuner head was broke off for one string, sent back. Thanks GC for such quick replacement
          For the money great sound and looks wonderful!

          Nice Violin for the Price

          By William tuttle

          from Flagler Beach, Florida

          Comments about Silver Creek SC3B Acoustic-Electric Violin:

          I am very happy with my purchase and highly recommend this product. It is fun to play, and I am currently using it out. The violin arrived in a timely manner, and was in perpect condition when I unwrapped it. In fact, I waited for the UPS trunk to show up before taking it straight to band rehearsal to begin breaking it in.
          I like the position of the volume control. I have seen other models with controls that are on the side which would make it hard if not impossible to adjust during the middle of a song.
          Better than any other violin for the price. The SC3EL Acoustic/Electric Violin was just what I was looking for.
          When you consider the amount you are paying, you are getting a great value. One of my friends had this model that I used before purchasing mine. Sounds great plugged in and unplugged.

          Good Deal

          By B S

          from Santa Cruz, CA

          Comments about Silver Creek SC3B Acoustic-Electric Violin:

          I'm definitely happy with this violin.
          Having a pickup is a great option, I gave this a 9 because it would be nice to have treble/bass controls, but there's other ways to control that.
          As I'm just learning violin, I can't really speak to the overall quality of the instrument's tone (although this is always somewhat subjective and varies with each individual instrument). However, I am an experienced guitarist, and I can testify that the pickup and the sound into my amp definitely seems solid. It's fun to run it through efftects as well. The body seems solid and well-crafted, but I'm not too convinced with the bow.
          For under $1,000 this is definitely the best value you can find for a violin with both acoustic and electric options.

          Sweet Violin for the money!

          from Guntersville, AL

          Comments about Silver Creek SC3B Acoustic-Electric Violin:

          I have always wanted to learn how to play the fiddle. I first bought a very cheap beginner violin and I could not get a clean note out of it. I was about to give up and one my friends who plays with Jeff Cook of Alabama suggested this beauty. I took his advice and now am playing the fiddle during our gigs! I chose the natural color. It really stands out on stage. The pick-up is American made and sounds great through the PA. I would highly recommend this jewel to anyone wanted to play fiddle or violin.

          By Glenn in Iraq

          from Baghdad, Iraq (US Army)

          Comments about Silver Creek SC3B Acoustic-Electric Violin:

          Got my second Silver Creek violin. Was not happy with the first one ordered, (a second), but this one is almost top notch. Tuning is so fantasticily easy. No more fighting with the tuners when you have wide range fine tuners at the bridge. Plays grand. The 2nd, I kept, too, because it had the best case and you can't find violin cases that have special pockets for your shoulder attachments. I switched cases, and let my son have the old one with the new case. I took it to church and played with the sanctuary empty and filled the air with music.

          Ordered the Perfection Pegs to put on this instrument. Is really quite good for the $$$. It has a great sound through a PA and has good action. Don't be afraid to order this one. Worth every penny.
