MSI violins have the artisan's touch of maker Dan Maloney, who created the 'Modern' body electric violin in his earlier days as luthier at the old ZETA Music company. This iteration of his attractively shaped violin is semi-hollow, and features Dan's own multi-element pizeo pickup bridge. The pairing of the semi-hollow body and pickup give this violin a remarkably open and natural sound, forming a full spectrum of great violin tone.

This instrument may be the ideal answer for the tone purist who's been on the hunt for an electric violin that sounds as natural as their acoustic. The combination of semi hollow-body design and MSI's own transducer bridge yield a round, open tone of the semi-hollow instrument's acoustic resonance while producing a sweet, focused tone that's strong but not all electric-sounding or overpowering.

The design reflects a mature, refined aesthetic that showcases Dan Maloney's wood choices, attention to detail, and careful craftsmanship, while producing a lightweight instrument that feels like home to the classical player. The fit and finish on Dan's violins are second to none.
