The Kill Switch

So, my electric violin has an auxiliary in. The stated purpose is to run a CD player or an iPod through the violin to play along to, which is mostly useless, since any effects that I put on the violin will also get applied to the music, and distorting the music doesn't really sound that great.

But I've come up with a great use for that aux in. I'm calling it the kill switch.

I'm going to build a patch cord with a switch in it that goes into the aux in. The other end connects back up to the output off my violin. When I flip the switch, instant ear shattering feedback. Probably not the greatest thing to do with the preamp in my violin, but used sparingly, it could be a pretty cool effect.
