About Us


Our first electric violins were made in 1993! We then continued to experiment with shape and materials, with unusual design and with audio systems using the materials and technology available.

It was in 2001 that Ted Brewer Violins received a commission from Vanessa Mae. Vanessa was keen to use a sculpted acrylic electric violin model on her forthcoming album, ‘Subject to Change’.

We were thrilled with the commission and produced a customised Crossbow electric violin. She now has a total of three of our instruments.

About Us

Our modern acrylic electric violins now sell across the world, having achieved a reputation for excellent sound quality and visual impact.

In 2008 our instruments won a design award MIA MUSIC AWARDS 2008! The MIA Music Awards honour the best selling and most reliable and innovative products and retail initiatives in the UK and celebrate the top individuals and organisations within the musical instrument industry.

In what had been a challenging year for the industry, the MIA Music Awards provided a much needed opportunity to acknowledge the professionals who continue to drive forward creativity and innovation.

Today, in our workshop in Lincoln, we produce violins which sell around the world – mainly Vivo2 models, but we still produce many custom made instruments a year. The Crossbow and Hades violins remain customised designs produced individually, to order.

Ted Brewer electric violins retain a handcrafted quality that make the modern violin designs unique. You can visit us at our workshop by appointment.

Just call us on 01673 885969 and you can make arrangements to visit us and see how it’s done.

Ted Brewer Violins are based in Lincolnshire and sell violins all over the world. If you have any questions, or you want to know how much our violins cost in your currency please contact us!
