International star rock electric violin duo FUSE debuted their world exclusive, million-pound Swarovski-encrusted violins at an exclusive photocall held at Harrods.

The first for any violin group or electric string quartet, following in the footsteps of international superstars Madonna, Michael Jackson and Kylie Minogue, FUSE’s Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee joined forces with Swarovski to embellish each of their bespoke Bridge instruments with an incredible 50,000 crystals each, every one hand-applied, creating the world’s most expensive electric violins.

Insured for one nd a half million dollar each, these are, however, no museum pieces and – whilst there was security in attendance! – the duo played tracks from their forthcoming album ‘FUSE’ [out now!] on the violins at the photocall. 2 is the new 4, or rather FUSE is the new electric string quartet!

Following the photocall, the instruments were securely and prominently displayed in a case at the top of the fourth floor Egyptian Escalators at Harrods so that members of the public could have a look.

Linzi Stoppard of FUSE said, “These violins are incredible, just stunning – the light explodes off the Swarovski crystals. We love the fact that whilst they have become pieces of art, we can still play the songs from our new album ‘FUSE’ on them.

David Miller, Director of Harrods Home commented “We are delighted to welcome FUSE to our world-famous store to celebrate the launch of their debut album.”

He went on to say “Harrods is renowned for enhancing its customers’ shopping experience’ and added ‘On this occasion, our customers will have the chance to catch a glimpse of these extraordinary masterpieces which will be exhibited on the fifth floor of the iconic Egyptian Escalators.”
