This evening at the Union Square subway station a large crowd gathered around a violinist rocking his heart out. His name is Michael Shulman, and he shreds — on a black violin with flashing red lights. Described by Strings Magazine as “Paganini-meets-rock-guitar god Yngwie Malmsteen,” his kung-fu inspired dance moves are as spectacular as his pimped-out violin.

It turns out Shulman isn’t the only one who has taken liberties with his electric violin. A quick Google Image search of “electric violin” yields a bounty of flashy examples.
