Acoustic Bow

i just bought a bellafina electric violin, and i bought a bow, and it doesn't seem to work.?

i assume it's an acoustic bow?
it works perfectly fine with an amp, everything is fine. the bow is a normal bow made for a acoustic but i read that it should work the same. i am still unsure.
help?
i have tested it with the bow, no work.

FIrst off you forgot to mention something very important. Is the violin an electric only, or an electric accoustic? As far as the bow goes, there is no such thing as an electric or an accoustic bow, they are all the same. Some composite bows make better bows for electrics because they create less underlying noise. The other big question, since you said nothing about it in your post, Did you rosin the bow really well? These cheaper instrument sellers are notorious for sending bows out with zero rosin on them and it takes like 10-15 minutes of constant work to get enough rosin on the bow to work normally. If your violin is an electric only, it will never sound like much not plugged in. If it is an electric accoustic and it seems to work fine plugged in and not unplugged, then you don't have enough rosin on the bow. The string needs very little friction from the bow to work electrified, but needs a lot to move the wood of an accoustic bridge and instrument body to produce a quality audible sound.
