I've been lurking on this site for awhile now. I now have a nice Fiddlerman Master violin, so I figured it was time for me to introduce myself. I started off with a Cecilio electric CEVN to see if I liked playing, and more importantly that I would keep playing. I haven't been practicing to the level I need to be, but I am trying to do the member's holiday recital. I might have bitten off a bit much there for my playing level, but I'm getting through it, and I'm glad they pushed the deadline back.
I do want to say thank you to all the people here on this site, its a great place for beginners and it has helped me alot being an adult beginner. And a big thanks to Pierre for helping me pick a "proper" violin and for this site.
So here is my violin. It came out a bit lighter than I expected, but it is sounding great. I got Wittner mechanical tuners put in to make it a bit easier.
The pegs are way better than the Cecilio pegs, but that isn't saying much. They are really easy to get tuned, but it seems like the strings are stuck somewhere. I'll turn the peg a little and the tone won't move. I usually have to turn the peg too far and then I hear the string pop, then I turn the peg backwards and I can get it tuned. I have even used them to tune the e-string, but at times I find the fine tuner easier.
