are a range of
custom made skeletal-frame, electric violins, violas, cellos,
They have been
designed and made by David Bruce Johnson, in Birmingham since 1992,
and are made to customer order from the workshop at Moseley Violins.
Violectra combines a
distinctive sound with an excellence in design and
construction. Using a unique piezo bridge system, the sound is
produced by directly sensing the interaction of string tension
over the wooden frame. With the advance of string technology
Violectra can offer players the choice between 4, 5, 6, 7
& 8 string models.
I hope you enjoy
browsing through the site and I welcome your enquiries and
comments. Visitors can try out various models including a 4 5
& 6 string violin and 4 string cello at our showroom
at Moseley Violins. We are continually working on new models
and at present are working on a 7 string violin to be
available, from this autumn 2011.
