 Electric Violin Stringed Instruments
Acoustic violins may be used with an add-on piezoelectric bridge or body pickup, but often suffer from feedback on stage, in addition to the raw piezo sound.
The timbre or tone color of an acoustic violin is created directly because of these resonances, however, so depending on how the signal is picked up, an electric piezo violin may have a much more "raw", "sharp" sound than an acoustic.
Electric violin signals usually pass through electronic processing, in the same way as an electric guitar, to achieve a desired sound.
