If you love playing violin, but hate practicing, an electric violin might be the perfect solution. Electric violins are powered by an electric guitar amp, making them much louder than traditional violins. When played correctly, an electric violin can produce a full range of notes, from low to high.

Electric violins come in a variety of models and sizes, so finding the right one for your needs is important. In the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab, we evaluate electric violins for use in performance, such as for live performances and concerts, as well as playability, such as for practice and beginner players. We also evaluate electric violins for sound quality, including volume, tone, and responsiveness.

Electric violins come in a variety of models, including full-size violins, miniature violins, and violins that sit on top of your regular guitar. Our picks for the best electric violins are based on our testing and expert recommendations. Here are the best electric violins you can buy in 2022:

It's much easier to tune the MIRIO-Black than a traditional acoustic violin, and it has a considerably louder sound than many of the cheaper electric violins we tested. The instrument is lightweight, and its ebony and pearl eye fittings add a touch of class. The MIRIO-Black is best suited for beginners and advanced players, and it's ideal for parties or shows.

Cecilio Silent Electric Solid Wood Violin with Ebony Fittings, Violin Electric Kit in Various Colors and Styles (Cut Out

by Cecilio Musical Instruments

Includes: lightweight hard case, Brazil wood bow with unbleached genuine Mongolian horsehair, quality rosin cake, a bridge, aux cable, and headphones

Cecilio's Silent Electric Solid Wood Violin with Ebony Fittings is an exceptionally high-quality instrument, and it's the cheapest electric violin we tested. Its sound is rich and full, with plenty of power and projection, and it's an exceptionally well-balanced instrument overall. The bow is very stable, and the strings are very quiet. The strings are mounted to the pegs at an angle, which helps keep the instrument well-balanced. The violin is a little bigger than a full size violin, and the scale length is a little longer, so it produces a slightly brighter sound than smaller electric violins. The violin is tuned in sixths, so it's a little harder to play than an electric violin tuned in fourths. The volume control is under the hood, and it's very sensitive. Although it can be noisy when turned up all the way, you can turn the volume down by about 30 decibels, and it's much quieter. The bow has a mute button, and it has a 3/4" headphone jack. The muted sound is very bright, almost too bright for some users, but you can easily adjust the volume. The violin comes with a 9V battery, a USB cable, a power adapter, and a carrying bag. The violin also comes in several other sizes and styles, including 3/4 size, 3/4 size with case, 1/2 size, and a 1/8 size.
