The Cricket Violin


9/16/14 Update – Finally dialed in the adjustable chin/Shoulder rest along with a few other improvements. The chin rest was shifted further away from the instrument and the shoulder rest was tucked further under the instrument providing a more balanced support. The neck was also modified to allow for an additional 1.5” of unobstructed top plate area. This combined with the downsizing of the sound holes, resulted in a more balanced output with improved low end resonance. The pickup transducer was also moved further under the bridge for increased response plugged in. Everyone’s support and feedback has been very helpful as we continue to make improvements – thanks.


The Magic Fluke Company is proud and excited to officially debut the new Cricket Violin. Just like Magic Fluke's renowned Fluke, Flea and Firefly ukuleles, it shares the same distinctive design and quality features. The Cricket is a full-scale violin, versatile enough to satisfy seasoned violin and fiddle players looking for an affordable, durable travel instrument as well as beginner students needing a ready to play, fully set up, first instrument. Best of all, its lots of fun, very affordable and made in the USA!

With its unique open headstock and use of simple Grover friction pegs or optional geared Pegheds, the Cricket Violin is remarkably easy to tune or restring. Like our other instruments, the body is molded of a high quality, glass reinforced, durable thermoplastic for stiffness and resonance. The arched top is CNC machined solid spruce with a choice of solid walnut or maple neck. The included chin and shoulder rest is adjustable three ways to accommodate all players. The end result is a surprisingly full range, warm sounding violin that's comfortable to hold and easy to play.
