Electrolin electric violin

Violon électrique Electrolin

The Electrolin revolutionizes the world of electric violins by introducing a resonant body that vibrates without emitting sound, thus eliminating feedback for a rich and natural sound. This instrument also offers a new range of sounds with effects, offering interesting possibilities to various genres such as Blues, Rock, or Electronic, while retaining the sensations of a classical violin. Thanks to its innovative design, the Electrolin can also serve as a nearly silent practice instrument, offering unprecedented flexibility for musicians.

Bodo Vosshenrich's instruments combine the DNA of German violin making with the French finesse of execution, offering exceptional sound quality in a variety of classical aesthetics, with varnishes ranging from coppery orange to reddish-brown. Among the models currently available, "La grosse Bertha" stands out for its inspiration from an Italian violin from 1928, displaying remarkable projection and harmonic richness.

Its evolution, from the 18th century to its integration into modern genres like jazz or metal, reflects instrumental adaptation and innovation.

5-string Neolin

Le violon Neolin à 5 cordes

The Neolin is now available in a 5-string version (5V2), offering a particularly well balanced low C string. This version allows for superior amplification and sound adjustment, making the fifth string a valuable addition. Furthermore, the Neolin's hybrid 4/5-string model allows for the addition of the low C string through an ingenious quick transformation system.

Violin with frets

Violon avec frettes

The hesitation of musicians between a fretted violin that allows for a variety of new playing styles and the desire to maintain freedom of expression with pure intervals and glissandos, the Neolin reinvents itself with a major innovation: two interchangeable fingerboards for the same instrument. This technical solution, both simple and ingenious, only requires slightly loosening the central strings to change the fingerboard, reinforced by carbon fiber rods to prevent any deformation.
