If you can play the violin can you play the electric violin?
You would be able to play the electric violin just fine with
Acoustic Violin skills. The only thing is that the electric violin
might take some getting used to as it has a different fell from the
First you would have to actually buy a violin to see what it sounds like.
Then you would also have to buy an electric one.
Then you compare and contrast.
Theres your answer!

No. Electric are heavier and you don't have to worry about producing sound (due to it being amplified). And some electric ones have frets.
no.....it sounds more electric. That's like asking if an electrical guitar sounds like an acoustic. absolutly not! The regular violin can have more of a mellow, natural sound. With the electric violin you can get more of a modern sound. The electric violin is usually used in fiddle/bluegrass music. The regular violin is used in classical performances and orchestras. I personally do not play a electric violin because they sound so different. But you can…
It depends on your electric violin. A hollow-body violin with an acoustic pickup (basically, a traditional violin with a microphone built into it) will make sound just like a standard acoustic violin. A solid-body electric violin will make sound without an amp...but unless you're the violin player, you won't hear it.
An acoustic violin is a traditional/classical violin. When an instrument is acoustic, it doesn't rely on electricity or any other outside sources besides a player to operate. The other example would be an electric violin. This instance is the same as the two broad types of guitars - acoustic and electric.
well, the main difference is that an electric one runs off electric. acoustics are made out of wood, and give a nice ntural sound, but do have a tendancy to squeek. electric violins are usually not filled in- they are just the "frame" of a violin. the main pro to electric violins is that you can turn the volume up- but you have to carry around an amp aswell.
Without an amp, the electric violin is almost impossible to hear. It is like rubbing a bow on an elastic band.This is because the box where the sound usually gets amplified does not exist on the electric violin (much like the electric guitar). This means that the sound will not be amplified, and the only sound you will hear is the sound of the vibrating string coming directly to your ear.
