From the Owner
We are a small company, located in Oswego, NY, that started off as just a frustration with electric violins. Upon founding EVL, we wanted a quality electric violin, that felt natural and sounded great. Not finding anything on the market to suit the basic needs of a musician, we came up with a plan to build our own. From there we developed the instruments you see on this web page, designed by musicians for musicians. We offer high quality at affordable prices, and that's been our goal since the beginning.
I play these violins myself at shows and in the studio, and am constantly striving to make what I consider the perfect violin. Our latest violins are a culmination of years worth of design, playing, tweaking, and dedication to creating the best. I think you'll be happy with what we have to offer here, and if you don't see what you're looking for, email us, and we can discuss making what you consider the perfect instrument.
" I cant get over how comfortable this violin is to play. It feels so much more natural than my Yamaha, not to mention the difference in sound quality. I thought I would end up still using my Yamaha to practice at home, given its a "silent". Not a chance after playing this one, I cant imagine ever wanting to play the Yamaha again. "
"We received the violin last week, and it's perfect for her. She's been playing the violin for 12 years, and she's also very good at the electric guitar. She likes metal/punk, and this new beautiful black EVL violin is great for her favorite music. She's calling it inspirational, awsome, totally cool, and several words I don't know the meaning of - but it's all good. You guys did an remarkable job. Thank you!"
