I'm planning to convert an electric violin (china brand) to a baritone Violin. I'm looking for advice from people who have done it before. Here is my current plan/shopping list.
Purchasing a China Brand Electric Violin (similar to Cecilio) for $100 CAD, if this works I may eventually move to a more expensive Violin or 5-string.
Purchased Sensicore Octave strings (set of 4).
Purchased 4 Cello Fine Tuners which I attach to the tailpiece so I don't have to modify/replace the tailpiece.
Bass Guitar (because of the larger string diameter) tuners which I'll use to replace the tuning pegs that come with the violin, so that I have easier time tuning the thicker gauge wires. I've seen electric cellos use these so I know it should (in theory) work.
I also purchased a new bridge which I'll copy-cat sand to match the one that comes with the violin, then modify for the thicker strings.
Updates once everything arrives!
Learning to Play the Violin again after 20+ years.
