the angle and proportions are also compatible with all common wireless solution - veryimportant for Linzi and Ben as FUSE's renown live performance could not be described asstatic, it is high impact, high energy, more akin to a pop guitar band.FUSE started with off the shelf Bridge violins but as their international profile sawed FUSEnurtured a closer relationship with the violin manufacturer and it wasn't long before FUSEcustomised variations started to appear on their live tours.One of the more coveted bespoke FUSE Bridge violins were their gold plated one-offs.Each violin had a redesigned kevlar body to off-set the added weight from the gold plating.Linzi says "my Bridge Four String Aquila is complimented wherever I play. I love the way itlooks, the full body is very cool. But the best part is the awesome sound it generates - it isricher and more colourful sounding than my previous violins, but still even in tone. It isresponsive yet very natural and acoustic sounding. This is in part due to the pre ampwhich gives it a beautiful amplified tone but I mostly put this down to the PiezoConfiguration of the pick ups which help give it that really true, clean and honest sound.Not forgetting it is beautiful and funky to look at, light and comfortable to play."
FUSE’s BespokeGold Plated Aquilas
FUSE’s eponymous breakthrough album was released in 2010 through Edel Records.The duo seize classic Rock tracks and put them through the FUSE wringer! The resultsare radical, innovative but loving reinterpretations for the electric violin. “FUSE” features14 incredible tracks including ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay, Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’, the leadtrack by Andreas Johnson and a stunning blend of the mediaeval ‘O Fortuna’ fromCarmina Burana and Zeppelin’s ‘Kashmir’. All tracks have been reworked and reanimatedin the unique FUSE way. The duo have had to invent new ways to render melodies thatwere vocal on the original tracks. FUSE aim to prove that the electric violin can be asversatile as the electric guitar – a valedictory romp through “I Love Rock N Roll” seems toseal the deal!
