been through quite a number of fiddle forums, and they are supposedly the two best models around when it comes to electric violins.

    The transparent is cooler. The blue looks abit beng, whereas the white is nice and classy, but a bit more “normal”. How much are they?

    If you can, try play a ‘demo’ to get a feel for how comfortable it is when you play it and how you feel about the sound it makes. These two are definitely both excellent violins, it just boils down to personal preference… (THE Ted Brewer VIVO2 Electric Violin!!;)

      haha unfortunately, i live in London so getting my hands on the Zeta was slightly tricky as it only retails in the US…having said that i think the Zeta is definitely an excellent instrument too, at least going by feedback by many violinists on forums.
