Great if you aren't a professional violinistNov 15, 2009
By Bill Buchko
I picked this up to add to my interesting instrument collection. I wanted something cheap to learn and practice on. This worked great. The first thing that I did was take it to a local trusted music store to give it a once-over. The guy (with 60+ years of violin experience) told me that I got a steal for the price that I had paid. He said mine was probably worth more along the lines of $130.
Now don't get me wrong, this is not a professional violin and it has its issues. The bridge is relatively flat and there is not enough action on the next to shave it down and round it out more. This will make it harder to play the middle strings, but not impossible. The bow is also not the best, but it does work well enough for what I need. You will also have to learn to make the tuning pegs stick more and less. Some of mine needed some rosin to make them stick more while some needed a little crayon wax to make them slide a bit more. Just some trial and error.
The sound is as good as I would expect. It sounds decent to me. Not great, but decent. However, I would guess that much of the poor sound is coming from my lack of talent and not the violin itself.
Recommended if you are looking for a fun toy or a cheap learner, but not the best choice for advanced users or actual performances.

AUSTINS VIOLIN BAZAAROApr 15, 2010
By LaDonna C Smith
This great little violin is as weird as your gear!!! fuzz tone, overdrive, loopty loops, gotta have some sonic processors, otherwise you'll just sound like one of those loud tinny wanky dank, out of tune icky wickies, or a cat that the rocker just ran over it's tail.
Just kidding!!! I love the little AUSTIN BAZAAR for it's tone (through all of the above).. but I have a little G6 ($49 amp) and it sounds better through it than a clean expensive amp. The only problem with Austin, is you might want to get it a cadellac bridge and peg adjustment, but i've MADE mine work.. patience & persistence. I teach many violin students, many interested in an electric. It's the best choice for a first electric out there..(not a big investment-and can be adjusted to any spec) and quite frankly, the hollow-body plastic gives it a better tone than the more expensive solid wood or fiberglass ever can.

Its "Alright"Mar 22, 2011
After about $20.00 of modifications, I got this violin into playing condition. The bow that comes with this violin did not hold tension. The hair quality was decent though. I replaced the boy with a stronger one. I also had to add fine tuners. Only one fine tuner comes on this instrument (on the E string). The pickups are very hot and sensitive, but surprisingly produced a sound i didn't expect from a cheap violin. If you are on a tight budget, this is not a bad buy. It works great as a practice violin or something you just want to learn on.

get one todayJul 15, 2013
at first i was skeptical about an electric violin. i know nothing about violins period. so i had a buddy come over, set up the bridge, tune it up and he was amazed at the sound it made. he liked it so good he wanted one for himself. be cautioned, the violin is not put together when you get it, you have to put the bridge on yourself and tune it yourself. does not include a tuner. didnt include any kind of instructions on how to set the thing up, so get to know a violinist if you decide to order one of these

Cheap, but InexpensiveAug 16, 2013
By Alexander Striker
It comes with everything and it works as it is supposed to, but deep down you know you're playing a piece of plastic.
The construction is rough, as I expected. The tone it generates is not exactly dynamic or resonant, but, for my purposes and effect pedals, this is fine.
The choice of white is the perfect reminder that I can paint it however I please. I'll probably gut the hardware and build a new body just for fun, eventually...But I'm like that.
