Overview

The 6-string fretted version of Wood Violins Viper may be the most revolutionary and innovative electric violin ever offered to modern violinists and guitarists. With the breakthrough design of its patented Chest Support System, the Viper is a completely self-supporting violin. The shoulder pad and chin rest are no longer needed, allowing you to perform longer without experiencing neck and back fatigue that a traditional violin can create. Violin players can experience the physical and musical freedom that up until now has only been available to guitarists. And guitarists can experience the expressiveness of the bow which creates everything from singing infinite sustain to crisp staccato attack.

¢ Explore distortion, sustain, & feedback with the use of pedals and effects
¢ Play violin, viola, cello and bass parts on one instrument
¢ Play rhythm, lead and chords in all contemporary music styles
¢ Tuning: 6-string from high to low: E,A,D,G,C,F (or standard guitar tuning)

Patented Chest Support System
The most exciting development in electric violins is Wood Violins' invention of the revolutionary lightweight Chest Support System, which eliminates the need for a chin rest and shoulder pad, allowing the instrument to support itself. The main component is an adjustable platform and for additional strength, an adjustable chain is attached to all fretted 6 and 7-string Vipers. With the utilization of the Chest Support System, the player now has the freedom of movement to explore options that were previously impossible such as singing, and performance "antics." In conjunction with the Chest Support System, a guitar strap is secured from one wing of the instrument to the other and fastens comfortably around the player's back.

Frets
Play two to three note chords like a guitar without compromising the beautiful subtleties of an acoustic violin fingerboard. All slides and bends associated with the violin still apply with frets (we file the frets lower on the D, A, E string side). Also, with frets, the player can explore many pizzicato sounds and pick-like guitar styles.
(Note: All violins are also available fretless.)

Pickups
The Viper comes with a Schatten pickup (we encourage using a pre-amp with the Schatten).
