Any conventional bow can be used with our electric instruments. Often a player will choose a viola bow for the six or seven string violins as the additional weight will make it easier to play the very low pitches available on those instruments. For those players who are thinking of a modern bow to match with their new electric violin, we offer the full CodaBow line of graphite-fiber bows. These fine bows are available at special prices when purchased with our violins.
We highly recommend Super-Sensitive Sensicore Strings for our violins. Super-Sensitive makes the special low and high pitched strings for our extended range instruments and their standard pitch strings are also unsurpassed in quality. These will be the strings that come stock on your Jordan Violin and you can always order replacement sets from us.
There are many excellent choices of amplifiers that work well with electric violin. Most of the best choices are designed as acoustic instrument amplifiers as these have ultra-high impedance inputs that match ideally with the types of transducers used to sense the string vibrations, and they are designed for accurate sound reproduction. There are far too many brands and models to list all the possibilities, but here are some popular choices:
- Deluxe Oblong, Cordura cover, velvet interior, matching blanket, and four bow holders
- Four String Case - add $130 Five, Six, or Seven String Case - add $260 Double Case - add $360
