GLASSER. The Only Name in Violin Bows… and now VIOLINS, TOO!

Violinist Alex DePue says,

 

“In short, I tooootally recommend for others the new Glasser line of elec. violins.

So, the reason for that is pretty simple… I was involved with the whole process, from the very beginning until the final launch of Mr. Glasser’s new fiddles. Everything was taken into consideration with regard to playability… the space afforded to the bow when crossing strings, for example, for both the four-string model, and also the five-string, we made several adjustments in this dept. before calling it done.

 



We also covered the height of the bridge, and the “action” for the left hand to appreciate… it’s ridiculously playable, and I feel very much responsible for the success in that area, too. If someday, Mr. Glasser keeps the same settings we managed early on, and did something newer and perhaps more creative with the body of the instrument, thus creating more visual excitement? That would be great to see one day, but when it comes down to the “meat and potatoes” of what we might consider the “perfect” and/or “perfectly PLAYABLE” fiddle? The Glasser fiddle wins.

So… and of those options available currently to the elec. violinist, my answer is indeed, still GLASSER. Plus the fiddle is very affordable, too… and for the first time ever, we have all of the electronics hidden within the chinrest, so it’s also a very clean look. If you use a wireless system, then even better. We made adjustments in this category too… like the tone knob, for example. At first, there was no point even including the tone knob, as it initially didn’t even affect those frequencies needed to fully appreciate whatever changes in tone we would hear by turning that knob. So, and after a couple tries in the electronic dept for that violin? It’s now perfect. Yeah… I would nominate the Glasser elec/acoustic violin for anyone serious about having a beautifully PLAYABLE electric fiddle.” -Alex DePue

    One of my life's most musical moments, all documented via video here from the Mainly Mozart Festival's 2020 Season, as performed with my kid brother (let's be fair, he's certainly not anything like a "kid" anymore, especially when he lights into that fiddle!), Mr. Zachary DePue. This time, Zach is literally improvising, on the spot, what one could only deem the unwritten second violin part (just as it SHOULD have been written!), and along with yours truly playing the original score for solo violin, as written by Monti... but THEN, folks, and without giving away all of our surprises (you must listen!), we have also featured here IMMENSE talent from the likes of these other alien-like creatures who are just overflowing with musicality: -Flugelhorn / trumpeter, Mr. Conrad Jones-Joshua Fobare playing the everlasting trill on that piano (lol), along with -Matt Scarano on the drums, and last, yet certainly never least, -Ranaan Meyer with some BEAUTIFUL solo work on the double bass. "Solo" on the double bass, you say?! YES! You won't even believe it! It was truly my own mad, MAD pleasure having had the opportunity in joining up with these young cats to provide a night of much-needed beauty last year, all made possible by the lovely Nancy Laturno and the beloved Mainly Mozart organization. Tonight's upload extends also the most honorable mentions going out to my beloved wife, -Aria Noelle Curzon-DePue, for her video editing skills, and also -Mrs. Katie McBride-Muzquiz, the not-so-often-heard-name, responsible for making the wheels of that Mainly Mozart bus run impeccably perfectly spinnin' round and round.Much love to ALL y'all from your Fiddler tonight! AND... AND... MORE COMING SOONLY! -AD ... See MoreSee Less
