ELECTRIC VIOLINIST HISTORY
The history of the electric violin is a complex topic, with musicians and inventors creating original versions throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.
Whilst there is no document of the first-ever concept, Elisha Gray invented the idea in 1874.
In 1920, the jazz and blues player Stuff Smith took to the stage with the first electric violin. The well-known violinist struggled to be heard over the other performing musicians, and after experimentation with various amplifiers and pickups, he took to using a National Dobro Vio-Lectric.
This change sparked the interest of several companies during the 1930s and 1940s. Suddenly, Electro Stringed Instrument Corporation, National String Instrument Corporation and Vega Company started manufacturing their electric violins.
