These LED violins accompany string music with a psychedelic light show. The Spectra Illuminated Violin lights an electric violin from the inside, providing a musical performance with an accompanying glow of colored light. The parts of the instrument are spotlighted in a completely unique way.

The changing colors will keep audiences engaged -- in addition to listening closely, they won't be able to look away. The basic version of the LED violin comes with a color-evolving light but the Spectra can also be customized with etching and various designs.

Technological developments keep improving music with new digital media but LED violins are a way of taking a more traditional form of music making and giving it a modern twist. The added excitement of an updated technology will draw focus back to classical instruments.
