I am from Egypt and our currency equals 0.058 USD. to afford 800 USD "at least for a good reasonable factory violin", means more than 14,000 pounds and this is a very big deal for an amateur" not professional violinst" So i now started to think of electric violins also i'm a big fan of acoustic.. SO WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN THE ELECTRIC VIOLIN OR HOW I EXAMINE QUALITY OF MATERIAL BEFORE SOUND? and thx thx so much
Hi All, I'm new here and excited to talk to fiddle folks! ( instead of the wall!) I am an artist and live in the Mountains, ( Alppalachia USA. ) I am a self taught picker & have a handfu of violas, Gambas, tenor vielle, and cello. I can play them all at medium 'Jam'..or easy classical level. I read and play by ear. Every so often I have to take one of my 'babies' to a repair luthier. Sadly I have had results which range from doubtful to scary. I DONT WANT TO DO that anymore! I am a skilled silversmith, fune needle worker, desighner, and award winning copper plate etching artist, as well as wood cuts and have tooled soom saddles. I can andle MOST exacting crafts. I am READY to take on basic set up and light repairs for fiddles. I am searching for sources...both INFO, and GOOD quality materials, and tools. I am on Soc Sec. So...am NOT wealthy...but KNOW the value of good tools! PLEASE... send me any advice or leads you can. I have 4 instruments that need attention...and ...am playing the only one that is ' working'. THANK YOU for your help and encouragement! Miss Billie, ( Blue Ridge Girl )
