Wood violins released the new Viper Classic at NAMM 2020, available in 4-string and 5-string fretless models. The new models feature a wood Tru-Tone piezo pickup, with a transducer in the bridge, as well as a first position heel for players just starting out on electric violin. They’re available in a much faster turnaround time than the original Viper models.
