Acoustic Electric Strings is the creative inspiration of
Gary E. Bartig...
...designer of the Eminence Portable Upright Bass, and the Dahlia 5-String Acoustic Violin.
A respected luthier and musician with a background in electronics and sound engineering, Gary has long been searching for a superior-sounding violin pickup - one that's lightweight, unobtrusive, with little or no bow clunk. With the recent innovation of his patent-pending internal, bass bar pickup installed in great sounding, affordable instruments, AcousticElectricStrings.com is off and running!
Our audio clips, recorded by Gary in our Warehouse Studio, showcase the acoustic and amplified tone of each instrument. Click here for audio clip technical details.
We ship worldwide. For US orders, we offer a one-week free trial period and free shipping (with credit card deposit), and we're happy to send more than one instrument to expedite your decision.
We're now on !
Which means Gary can show you a selection of instruments — and play a tune on each — to give you first-hand experience with our instruments before you make your purchase. It's almost as good as playing them yourself!
Here's how it works: set up a Skype account, and email your Skype name and some possible times to connect. We'll confirm a time, send you an invite to join our Skype network, and get the call going. That's it!
So email us for a Skype appointment with Gary today!
