Hello there, I have never even touched a violin before and I'd like to start, I was wondering what I should get between electric and acoustic and good kinds that aren't that much as I kinda lack the hundreds some people pay for their instruments. I eventually wanna play Sad Romance by Thao Nguyen Xanh, and Time's Scar by Yasunori Mitsuda And I don't know the sound differences, upkeep and such. so feedback as to what would be the best for me would be well liked.
I could recommend You to start with acoustic one either. It has definitely wider diapason of volume - so You can work on dynamics right from beginning of your journey =) And acoustic is usually lighter than electric. That's important for building your posture at the start. Though, here are some members that have only electric violins and learn to play very succesfuly... So it's very individual. If You have any opportunity to visit your local music store to try both acoustic and electric - take a chanse !
About noise - if You prefer acoustic one - remember about the practice mute. Since i've got one - i don't touch my e-violin at all.
If You will prefer the electric one - You'll have an opportunity to use lots of effects by connecting it to any guitar processor/pedal or your computer =) and this fact makes studying really fun =) But i would not recommend to get used to play with effects from the beginning, because it camouflage intonation and tone production imperfections.
Welcome to the forum!
Just wanted to give you a very late welcome! I'd recommend you get an acoustic first, and then an electric, so you can practice at nights, and at 5 in the morning, etc. I have an acoustic, but an electric would come in handy sometimes. I just love the sound of the acoustic (Cecilio CVN-500), and hate it, when I have to put a mute on.
