The idea of the C-Violin is a new bowed instrument concept with the best features from a classic and an electric violin, entirely made by luthier Cölestin Kober. This five or four string semiacoustic electric C-Violin concept can alse be made as a C-Viola and C-Cello.
C-Violin is a unique combination of a classical acoustic violin and an electric violin with special features. Is playes like a classical violin and also like a viola with a fifth string. With a bassbar and soundpost, the tone has an equal character to a classical violin sound. It is made from the classic violin tone woods maple, spruce and ebony. The pickup is a own specialy piezo pickup bridge designed only for this instrument. Classic violin strings are used. The 5 string C-Violin has the 1/2 viola C String in addition. Fine shellack varnish with natural resin, oil and coloring, makes tho wooden surface appear spectacular. The very thin application of this varnish protects the instrument while the wood can resonate freely.
