Really appreciate the revew done on the Ceceillo electric violin.  I've got two questions about that instrument

1.  How long does the batterly last?

2.  If you put a heavy mute on it, do you still get the full sound via the headphones?

Good questions.

The battery on my Zeta lasted about a year but I guess it depends on how long you have it on. I haven't had the Cecilio long enough to tell you for sure though. Battery time has never been an issue for me. I always carried an extra in my pocket when playing onstage with my Zeta but it would have been hard to change on stage without a small screwdriver. The Cecilio is easy to change in any case.

I'll get back to you about the heavy mute next time I have the electric fiddle out.
Probably tomorrow but I'm not sure I'll have the time.

Thanks!  Good to know it wouldn't eat batteries.  Plan on using the electric as my primary practise instrument.  That's why I asked about the mute.  Place I live is very sensitive to sounds - without the mute I'm afraid I would get complaints.  But with a mute, could I still practise and hear what I'm playing?

Sorry, I forgot to try that. LOL

I really don't think you will need it though. There is next to no resonance without power. It is a solid instrument. Kind of like when you play an electric guitar without an amp.

finally had the chance to try an electric violin with a heavy mute and headphones. Definitely reduced the external sound to a whisper. I thought the sound thru the headphones was orrery bad - not just muted, but distorted as well. or was that me? Anyone else try this?
