"I have two Bridge Electric Violins. a Lyra 5 string that I really enjoy using for band work and playing jazz because of the extra low C string: the other is an Octave which gives a really creamy sound an octave below normal violin tuning.


"These are funky whippy and great to use on stage. Virtually indestructible, they make playing a colourful joy"

"Opera Jade Rosin is grippy, not too sticky and green! It's price range is higher than the usual suspects sold, but it actively reduces bow hiss on the strings."

"Rat stands are so easy to use, pack and store. Yes, they are reassuringly expensive, robust, practical and beautiful - no sticky out legs!"
