Color: Berry Blue
With my disastrous fiddle I bought online just a a couple of weeks ago, I went to a Seattle Violin and String Store, and found the one that I wanted---it was the BBB-AE. I am very pleased with this violin.
Amplify your sound without the hassles of a microphone. Plug it into an amp or mixing board for recording or live stage use.

This fiddle is handcrafted in Romania. Carved and graduated of seasoned Carpathian Maple and Spruce. Ebony fittings, Wittner tuners and a hand-rubbed lacquer finish. Super-Sensitive Red Label strings.
Comes with a Glasser bow, dark resin, and soft-shape case with detachable shoulder strap. I wanted the Red-Berry Burst colour, but am happy with blue.

Features & Benefits:
* Superb acoustic performance as well as unequalled acoustic-electric capability.
Beautiful sound and nice feel on my neck and shoulder---pretty, pretty tone.....
* Built-in bridge piezo pickup produces excellent sound quality--a bit of a shock with the intensity of sound but I learned to work with it.

Just a bit of info.........
Vibrato-AE violins are preferred by pro violinists such as: John Jeansonne (Rascal Flatts), Brendon Anthony (The Pat Green Band), Downs Thompson (Clay Walker Band), Daniel Willem, Gary Oleyar, Jason Perri and Lisa Haley, Dan Hochhalter, and Amir Ali. xoxoxooxoxoxo

Color: Red-Berry Burst Verified Purchase
I bought this violin as an adult beginner. The color is excellent and finish is perfect.

The case it comes in is garbage and I would not recommend using it. The bridge of the violin was rubbing/wearing into the top, inside lid of the case and I was worried something was going to break. I contacted the company with pictures and they sent me a new, higher quality case free of charge.

The fiberglass bow is OK quality, but after a year of using it I moved up to a carbon fiber bow and could hear a vast improvement.

I've played this violin for more than two years and it's holding up great. I do regular maintenance and cleaning and it still doesn't have a single blemish. The sound is excellent for the price (don't expect it to sound like Stradivarius, but it's very solid) and my instructor, with 45 years of experience, is impressed with the quality.

I can't vouch for the electric abilities, I hooked it up to an amp once and it sounded OK, but that's as far as I've gone with it.

Overall this is a solid buy and if you respect it and maintain it I think this violin is built to withstand decades of use.

This was my first time buying a violin and all I can say is wow! This violin is so awesome! It's sounds so good when played acoustic and even better when I use an amp! I play for my church and it just sounds so beautiful! I have no regrets with this Barcus Berry Black piano violin!!! Love Love Love!!

These acoustic/electric vios are great for live performance. The built in volume control and 1/4 inch jack make them very durable and roadworthy. They are virtually indestructible which is a real plus if you are a musician who tours. The pickup is very even and cut very nicely, even in very loud settings. Have them set up like the violin you are used to playing and you've got a live instrument that is built for the stage and live performance, right down to it's look. Enjoy!

Color: Metallic Green
When the insurance company offered me $600 to get a new violin after a house fire, I began searching for the best violin I could get at that price. I started looking into electric violins and after lots of research, it led me to this Barcus Berry electric/acoustic violin. The quality of this violin is superb, especially compared to my $1,200 acoustic violin. The only thing I would change on it are the strings, since I'm not a fan of red label, and the bow as it comes with a cheap Glasser fiberglass bow. Other than that, I can't believe the rich sound that comes from this instrument. I hooked it up to an amp and it was beautiful, I can't wait to get effect pedals for it! I would definitely recommend this violin to anyone looking to buy an electric violin.

The fiddle we purchased is beautiful and sounds great. My only concern is that I reutrned the warranty card and the post office returned it to me as undeliverable.Spending this much money should not leave me feeling vulnerable and not knowing where to turn if we have problems with the fiddle.

While it is not the most expensive violin, the sound is nice. Bow could be a bit better, but that is easily remedied
