Electric InstrumentsWood Violins

These instruments are designed by the well-known Electric Violinist, Mark Wood. The appearance of these instruments is stunning, but that should not fool serious players. They are serious instruments and perform at the highest level as the primary choice of many, many working professionals.

The Stingray is the entry level model. These are a great value. We also offer a rent-to-own option for Stringray outfits, which inlcude the bow, case, wha pedal and amp. So anyone can afford to get shredding on an electric. Contact us by email if you are interested in the rent-to-own program.

All other models are considered "Custom", which means they are made to order with specific choices of wood, finish, hardware and other features. Delivery time is about four months. We do stock a small selection of Custom models, so if you are flexible with the color and other options, let us know by sending us an email message. We will reply with a list of what is available currently or will become available in the near future.

 

Stingray This model represents the best value of any electric Violin on the market today. A case is included. These are available in fretless model only. They are feather-weight, no heavy batteries or preamps. And, they feature cutting-edge transducer pickups.

We generally keep a good stock of all colors and models. The outfits come with the instrument, case, matching bow and rosin. You can even get free music if you register your instrument on the manufacturer's website.

Wood Violins Custom Models. The Viper, Custom Stingray, Sabre and Cobra Cello are the custom models made by Wood Violins. These instruments are made to order, and require a significant order lead-time. We stock a few, though. Email us if you would like to check what we have in stock at any time. Pricing for Custom models varies with your choice of custom options. The prices shown here are with the natural finish, which is no extra charge. All other finishes are purchased as an upgrade. In our shopping cart, you will see the list of available colors and options, along with the price for each item.

Viper The flagship model of the Wood Violins line. Mark Wood himself plays a 7 string fretted Viper. Viper players often refer to their instrumnets as Vipers, not Violins, because they are truly in their own class, especially when fretted.

Don't think of frets on a Violin the same as frets on a Guitar. On a guitar, the player's fingers are placed behind the fret, but on a Wood Violins model, you play on top of the frets. You can still do vibrato and glissando! It gives players confidence to know that they will be in tune on a stage where the ambient volume is high and it is difficult to hear one's own instrument. The frets make a great visual aid to play with confidence when you can't hear your instrument well.

The Viper is also the model that has the patented harness system, which allows you to hold the violin without a shoulder rest or chinrest.
