Hello everyone! I would really appreciate your input on this.

I love playing my acoustic violin, but I've been thinking about buying an electric violin. Sometimes, I want to play really late at night but apparently my practice mute isn't enough to dampen the sound according to certain neighbors facepalm

I've read so much about EV's being less loud (unplugged, of course!), and being able to plug in headphones would help. 

Based on my skill level and budget range, I think the Cecilio CEVN would be the perfect choice for me, but I couldn't decide if I'd get the CEVN-1, -2, -3 or -4.

Besides the physical appearance, what are the differences between those four models? I couldn't seem to find anything else from what I read.

Thanks,

Jols

My neighbors probably want to strangle me for all the noise I've been making.  But hey, "no pain, no gain" right? Except, they feel the pain and I get the gain (I'm really sorry, neighbors :-S)

What kind of a mute do you have? I've got a solid metal one that REALLY dampens the sound well. I tried one of the rubber/plastic ones and they didn't do much at all.

I actually bought a Cecilio CEVN off Amazon before I found Fiddlershop. I ended up returning it because of a problem with the preamp, but the Cecilio was actually louder without amplification than my acoustic violin with the metal mute.

@sporkytherobot I use the rubber kind. I've never tried a metal mute. I'm a little scared to try actually, it looks really heavy and I might damage the bridge :-/ 

I know for the rubber kind, the tone gets a little off when I play. Does the same thing happen with the metal mute? And do you remember what brand you bought? I might try that first - I don't really think I'm ready for an EV just yet.

Jols,

There is no difference besides the shape and possibly very slight weight fluctuations between the models.

Thanks, Fiddlerman! I've decided to try the metal mute for now like sporkytherobot suggested (just bought one from Fiddlershop - should be here tomorrow!)

But I'll keep that in mind when I am truly ready for an EV.
