Just like Magic Fluke's renowned Fluke, Flea and Firefly
ukuleles, the Cricket shares the same distinctive design and quality features.
The Cricket is a full-scale violin, also available in 14" Viola scale tuned CDGA. Versatile enough to satisfy seasoned
violin and fiddle players looking for an affordable, durable travel
instrument as well as beginner students seeking a fully
set-up, ready-to-play first instrument. Furthermore, the Cricket is made in the USA.
With its unique open headstock and use of
simple Grover friction pegs or optional geared Pegheds, the Cricket
Violin is remarkably easy to tune or restring. Like our other
instruments, the body is molded of a high quality, glass reinforced,
durable thermoplastic for stiffness and resonance. The arched top is CNC
machined solid spruce with a choice of solid walnut, mahogany or maple neck. The
included chin and shoulder rest is adjustable three ways to accommodate
all players. The end result is a surprisingly full range, warm sounding
violin that's comfortable to hold and easy to play.
Available with Open Source Sensors
pick up. This high quality U.S.A. made soundboard
transducer is known for its warm, accurate acoustic sound reproduction, and these custom made
pickups give the Cricket a surprisingly big rich sound. Because of the
unique mounting between the sound post and the top, no preamp is
required which means no battery to worry about, and super light weight. Strung with D'Addario Helicore strings.
