My equipment for gigging (not that I have any gigs- but I want some).

Yamaha SV-120K Silent Violin. Built in pre-amp, reverb with three presets, aux-in, line out, headphone out. Sounds pretty sharp, especially with the reverb going. I've named her Alexis. The bow it came with isn't so great, but I've got a nicer one with my other violin- it can do double duty (and I've got a backup bow). Right now it's packing basic Yamaha Strings, and I'm not sure how much of a difference better strings would make on the SV.

Guitar Research GR60B bass amp. Strangely, violins work better with bass amps than guitar amps. The stiffer cone makes the tone much richer. It's got an effects loop, built in compression, separate gain/volume controls, three band shelving, seven band EQ, 60 Watts RMS. Mostly intended for use as a monitor/practice amp.

Soon to arrive, the Zoom 505 MkII, a digital effects stomp box. It's cheap, but with a wide range of good quality effects. And it was cheap. Soon Alexis will be screamin' out with wild distortion and some phlanger effects.

Trust me, that sounds pretty damn hot(t).
  • (no subject) -
    • The violin itself makes very little noise. You've got to plug it into something- for example, if you were to put in headphones, you would be able to hear it quite clearly through them, but someone across the room would only hear the faintest sound. Anyone in the room nextdoor would hear nothing at all.

      As a note- a really good electric, with a case and a bow ran me $811. A regular violin of the same quality would be much more expensive (ignoring the fluke student violin that I got that's $400, but in quality really should be in the $1000 range).
  • hope you get your gigs hope you hack your gear.
