I sing. And now I'd like to take my violin on stage with me. I tried it once, but I can't hear my violin, cause the drums, bass etc. are to load. How do I get to hear myself on stage?
You might want to try having an Electric Violin, that might work better. I was thinking more soloist-geared string set and bow might work, but then again, those are meant to be heard over a full orchestra.
Right now, an Acoustic-electric might be better off in your case.
You could use a pickup. My teacher is in a band, and uses one on her acoustics. It seems to work fine for her. I'm afraid I don't know which ones are best, since I don't perform, I just know that's an option.

Yes, pickups are great but you would probably need a monitor as well.
Those damn drummers!!!!!
Damfino and Fiddlerman thanks. There are many kinds in many prices, so there must be a pickup with my name written on it.
I fired the drummer, and said Fiddlerman convinced me to do so. ?
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
