This beautiful Viper is in excellent shaped for a pre-owned instrument! It has a warm, rich transparent tobacco burst finish over a beautiful quilted maple "exotic top" veneer. The wood of this top is really pretty, with a strong figure throughout. Exceptional tone is provided by a Barbera Twin Hybrid bridge, for a powerful, rich tone that's great for "acoustic" styles of amplified music, and ideally suited for high volume situations, as well as for use with high gain effects. Includes custom Bam Viper hard case, a $1,099 value!

5 Strings

Go deeper and richer, and cover more parts. A 5th string adds the viola C to the violin range. The bridge curvature and string spacing on the Viper make it easy to transition from your 4-string acoustic to this 5-string and back.

Viper Support System

The unique Viper support system combines a guitar-style strap with an adjustable locking chest support for a totally hands-free playing experience. The support system replaces the need for a shoulder rest and chin rest and affords you the ability to sing, move, run, jump, clap, interact with the audience…whatever!

Barbera Hybrid Pickup

The Barbera Hybrid pickup bridge integrates separate transducers for each string. Barbara bridges produce exceptional tone with strong, balanced output. Great for "clean" acoustic styles, and ideal for use with high-gain effects or in high-volume settings.


Frets are intended to help ensure that violinists playing in loud environments (e.g. rock band with guitar and drums) can play in tune even when they can’t hear themselves particularly well. Frets also give the fingerboard a visual component that some players find creatively helpful and assist in transposing finger patterns into different keys.

Wood Violins standard frets are what we call “locator” frets, because they provide a visual and tactile means of locating a pitch on the fingerboard but, unlike guitar-style frets, they are somewhat flattened and do not “break” the string. Therefore, you place finger on top of the fret to play in tune. This clever design also means that vibrato and glissando are not inhibited by the raised fret. Mark Wood’s patented dot pattern aids in finding 5th, Octave, 12th and other important positions on the fretboard.

Chest Strap &Support System

Wood Violins' patented chest support system gives you the freedom to move around on stage, step up to the mic, or whatever you need to do, and the instrument sounds as good as it looks. Break free of your traditional thought patterns, and take your playing to the edge!
