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 on this list is the Bunnel NEXT. It looks gorgeous and delivers an equally special sound. It’s best suited to hard rock, in our opinion, as the sound has a metallic quality to it. It's certainly a unique instrument that also offers excellent value-for-money. If you were to hear it being played and didn't know how much it cost, then you'd easily mistake it for an electric violin that was worth twice or three times the price.
The second product we will be examining in this comparison is the Stagg EVN X-4/4 MBL. Number 8 on our list is a cool electric violin that is perfectfor novices. Its body is made from maple, which means that it’s not completely silent when it’s not plugged in, but it's still quiet enough that it won't wake up your neighbors during a late-night practice session.
It feels sturdy to hold, and the sound is incredible for the price. It doesn’t feel like a cheap instrument. Here is a video review that we think will be very useful. It’s in Russian, but with English subtitles, so don’t let that stop you from watching it. It’s got lots of useful information and you can listen to some lovely tunes too.

Stagg EVN X-4/4 MBL
+ Unique design
+ Looks cool
|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
It’s affordable, and it looks and sounds great. One big advantage of it is that it comes with a lifetime warranty, which is rare, and the manufacturer also offers a 45-day money-back guarantee in case you should change your mind.This Bunnell NEXT electric violin comes with high-quality violin strings from D’Addario and a mini-amp, among other things, so you’ll have everything you need to get started. The bow that it comes with might not be the best, but it will certainly suit a beginner. Overall, this is a superb product that is reasonably priced and an excellent investment, in our opinion.
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 on mute, which is good if you want to be able to practice silently without disturbing other people.
