Every week I play in my church praise band and sometimes an occasional performance elsewhere. I have typically played my kohr k500 with this pickup. It has worked surprisingly very well for the money, but I do not want this being a long term solution. I have experimented with this cecilio electric violin, but as neat as it is, I prefer the acoustic sound right beside my head. (Along with that there are other reasons.)
I plan on getting an AE violin that gets the job done, but gets the job done pretty well. (Without breaking the bank. Maybe in future I will invest more, but for now, I don't want to spend too much.)
I also saw this special, although I'm not a big fan on the placement of the jack. Also, I was planning on getting something other than kohr (even though I really like my k500).
I have tried out the realist ae violins before, and I thought the acoustic sound was great. But I didn't like the placement of the jack, as it seemed in a kind of awkward position.
These questions have been bothering me for quite some time. How necessary are preamps? For the ae violins mentioned above? For electric/silent violins? And what are the differences/advantages of a $65, $120, and $170 preamp? What are your opinions on the preamps mentioned?
I'm sorry about the many questions, I just want to be confident in my purchase(s).
Was just browsing the new threads - can't help with the technical issues on an AE - but FiddlerMan was playing Tennessee Waltz - in his own inimitable style!
Good luck with your quest !
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
Ok, thanks Fiddlerman and BillyG!
What's the main difference between the preamp you suggested and the other Fishman preamp at the same price?
Do you prefer the one you suggested?
