November 26 I posted a new thread in the Breakroom about benefits of my electric cello. After replies and PM’s to another forum member, we thought that maybe it would be a good idea to have a new Forum Topic called, “Electric Bowed String Instruments”. Here is a link to my initial thread:


This would cover discussions, suggestions, information about any electric bowed string instruments. This would include accessories, how-to’s, how you use it, where use it, the assortment of shapes pros and cons, etc.

Maybe take the mystery out of them and show the benefits of their use along aide an acoustic, or instead of an acoustic.

This is an important topic.

I'm really surprised more members haven't suggested this. 

BUT... it is equally important to include all potential electronic equipment associated with playing and composing with these instruments!

I have a list of suggestions to send to Fiddlerman when things settle down. Waiting to get a few other things settled. 👍

I am in- looking to go with electric options in the near future.

I already have all of the gear except the instrument.

I need all of the help I can get.

Thanks so much for this suggestion.
