"This is the intersection of hostility and versatility, the apex of inspiration and perspiration” -Damon Barr

What makes any musical instrument sound great? A variety of factors come into play each as important as the other. However no factor is harder to overcome than a hostile acoustic environment. This instrument incorporates the finest advances in modern and ancient luthierial science to produce an incredibly dynamic presence. Traditional acoustic violins are designed to transform a subtle vibration into a more voluminous sound. Unfortunately, when we are on stage, less subtle vibrations (like the drum and bass guitar) are also being transformed and re-amplified through your instrument.

A true electric violin and viola, The G5 is designed to perform flawlessly in hostile acoustic environments. Reducing the resonant potential body of the instrument, this problem is reduced tremendously.

The Damon Barr G5 Violins and Violas are lightweight, comfortable and versatile in a wide variety of playing conditions. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to step boldly into the future with the VanderBarr G5 Violin or Viola.
