While it’s probably not a good idea to take an all-wood fiddle to the beach, the Cricket from The Magic Fluke Company offers a great alternative. This is a durable, portable, full scale violin with great acoustic and electric sound. Features a black stained spruce top, black lacquered neck and black stained bridge. Weighing only 15 ounces, this instrument has geared peghead tuners in an open headstock and a passive pickup with standard ¼” output jack. Comes with a very cool tube-shaped carrying case with shoulder strap.
