The Electric Violin, MK I – 2007

This was my first instrument (aside from the chimes I made from copper plumbing pipe for Grade 4 music class).  Most of the hardware and electronics were borrowed from a Supra electric violin from Steve’s Music in Montreal.  The wood is slightly spalted yellow birch from my brother-in-law’s woodpile.  This was a exercise in instrument make.  The supra’s pizoelectric pickup sits under the bridge.  The electric sound is clean but lacks depth.

Let me know what you think...
