Music Critic review products for everyone, from professionals to enthusiasts, and are written in plain English to make it easier to understand the options available and decide between them. Our tests and reviews can help point you towards models and brands that suit your needs. This product comparison article is just one in a series titled Top 10 Best Electric Violins
First, let's have a look at the Bunnel NEXT Silent Violin. The next violin we just had to include in this list is Bunnel NEXT. It looks really cool and has a very special sound. The sound feels metallic, almost superficial, and it’s probably best suited for hard rock, at least in our opinion. This is a really cool electric violin that isn’t just like all the others, but feels very unique. Even though it is very affordable, it would be really hard to tell the price in a blind test, because it’s so special.
The second product we will be examining in this comparison is the Stagg EVN X-4/4 MBL. Number 8 is a really cool electric violin that is perfect to buy as your first electric violin. Its body is made from maple, which means that it’s not completely silent when it’s not plugged in, so it can be good to silent practice with when you feel like playing late at night or just don’t want to disturb your neighbors.
It feels very nice to hold and play and the sound is incredible for the price, it doesn’t feel like a cheap instrument. Here is a video review that is really good. It’s in Russian, but with English subtitles, but don’t let that stop you from watching it, it’s got lots of useful information and you get to hear some really nice tunes!

|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|This is a great electric violin for the violinist that already has a regular violin but would like to try out an electric instrument. It’s affordable and looks and sounds well enough. One amazing thing about it is that it has a lifetime warranty, which is really rare, and they also offer a 45-day money-back guarantee in case you should change your mind. The Bunnell NEXT electric violin comes with high-quality violin strings from D’Addario and a mini-amp included, among other things, so you’ll have everything you need to get started. The bow that comes with it isn’t great however, so you should either buy another one or use a bow you already have.||Just watching the previously mentioned video will be enough for many to buy it without hesitation. It sounds really good and it looks the part too. On the back you can change the tone and volume, which is handy and when you play without an amp it’s like playing the violin with a mute, which is good if you want to be able to silent practice without disturbing other people.|
