My name is Tim and I am from MI. I used to play violin back in school (5 - 8th grade I think). After that, the high school I went to didn't offer orchestra so I kind of fell out of it. Now that I'm older, I've been getting back into it the last year or so, and decided to check out the world of electrics. I'm really looking forward to learning the instrument in a whole new way here.
I recently picked up a Stingray SV4. I have an acoustic amp (generic Guitar Center amp) that I plug it into. Now that the holidays are finally over with, I can start tinkering with it to see how it sounds. First thoughts so far, the pickup is HOT! I have to keep the violin volume knob at the lowest level or it is overwhelming, even with the 15 watt amp set way low. Am I doing something wrong, or is this just part of the whole learning process
Anyway, looking forward to the discussions.
