Volumelin / Violin


The timbre of violin is sharp so practicing often annoys others. However, the volume is usually so small that we have to use a microphone and speaker to increase it.
This electric violin design has earphones attached, so it won’t disturb others during practicing. Rotatable earphone supports the head comfortably, and it also allows adjustment to the correct position. The Built-in speaker is charged from a power source in the violin’s body. When there is a performance, the speaker can be detached and placed among the audience. Earphones allow the performer to hear what is been played during performance.
