hey! just thought i'd jump in, i play a left handed cecilio as well. after about 3yrs with Lei Fang(my violin name...crazy i know), ive learned a tremendous amount, im definitely ready for either another electric or a very warm and rich sounding acoustic. for beginners id say its great, ive moved around a bit and enjoyed the fact that most of my neighbors never knew i played because it was so silent. i like the fact that i can amplify and create different sounds and i like the no effects sound for getting the hang of new things. so in my opinion id say you made a good choice, but ive never played acoustic.....but i love the way they sound
Thanks for jumping in. The information you gave me about your EV helps.
I'm thinking of getting an EV, and then trying both the acoustic and the EV, and see which one would be better for me starting out.
As you see I'm writing this at 2 am I'm a night person, I know you can get mutes for the acoustic, but an EV might be a little better at 2 am in the morning.
Let me ask you, if I have both violins, do you think that would cause more confusion just starting out, or would it really not make too much of a difference. Thanks
confusion? hmmmm....no not really, i can imagine you would have to adjust little things in technique for either or, but just starting out? i dont think it would make a difference, though ive heard its better to start on acoustic. my choice for electric was soley on convenience, it might not be the same for you. however i will say, its easier in my opinion to focus on the music with headphones
