The perfect start for playing the electric violin

As an electric violin, the Harley Benton HBV 990AMB does not have an acoustic sound box like a classical violin, but a solid centre block. This means that the instrument is primarily intended for electrically amplified playing. This is made possible by an active pickup system that has a three-band tone control and various connection options. A plastic frame all around the instrument ensures a perfect hold when playing. Starting to play the electric violin is as easy as can be with this instrument: in addition to the electric violin itself, the delivery includes a case, a shoulder rest, a composite bow, rosin for coating the bow hairs and a 9-volt battery for powering the active pickup unit.

An brilliantly engineered instrument

The body of the Harley Benton HBV 990AMB is made of amber lacquered birch wood with a very attractive and high-quality grain; the fingerboard is glued to the maple neck and is also made of maple, here coloured black. Fine tuners on the tailpiece allow uncomplicated and sensitive tuning of the violin. The volume of the active pickup unit can be adjusted with a rotary knob on the underside of the instrument, and three sliders adjust the individually desired bass, mid and treble settings. Also on the underside is the compartment for the 9-volt battery for the power supply of the pickup system as well as the plug connection for the chin rest. Two mini-jack sockets (3.5 mm) are positioned on the side for connecting headphones and an external sound source such as an mp3 player; a very useful feature that allows a playback to be recorded during practice and listened to through the connected headphones.

It can get really loud!

Violinists from a wide range of musical backgrounds will be delighted with the Harley Benton HBV 990AMB, because this instrument offers uncomplicated amplification with a very variable tone. Also, with the piezo-based pickup system, feedback problems are virtually unheard of, even at higher volumes. The attractive price makes the Harley Benton HBV 990AMB appealing not only to beginners, but also to demanding players who are looking for a flexible electric violin as a second instrument. Incidentally, many violin players use an electric violin alongside their acoustic instrument for practising at home - so neighbours are not bombarded with penetrating violin sounds. In any case, the unamplified sound of the Harley Benton HBV 990AMB is loud enough to hear itself at a sufficient volume when playing alone.
