OK, I'm about to embark on the adventure of electric violin 🙂  I'd about decided on the Cecilio CEVN-1NA and was SO glad to see Fiddlerman's review and demo of it....that really, really helped!  At the moment, I want to use it mainly for quiet practicing and for my own amusement, but will most likely be using it in public, too (assuming I sound OK!) But now I'm wondering about an amp.  Something simple but effective, I'd be playing most times with 2 electric guitars and a vocalist, all through a PA, but in a quiet setting and not at any huge volume. 

 

A (non-violinist) musician friend recommended the Vox mini3, which is a guitar amp.  Would something like that work well for electric violin as well?  Like I said, it's only for occasional use and I don't want to spend a lot on one.

 

Thanks!

I bought a small amp on ebay for electric guitars and it works just fine for me.  I think it was only around 30 dollars or so.

I don't know how much you surfed but you probably got lucky with the Marshall amp.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Actually I found several and the first one I found had only 2 minutes left to the auction.  It went for 19.95 and 10.00 shipping.
