    Thanks. Really good input here. I'm going to have to try a few out at my local fiddle store, and perhaps look for some quality used instruments before settling on a new one. I know the best option is to spend a ton of money, but I'm not in that league yet.

    Digging up an old thread here but wondering if Santiago ever found a good electric violin that suited his needs?

    Acoustic. On an electric you won't learn how to use the bow for tone production

    I've successfully electrified 3 fiddles. Sound is good; less feedback than I get on my mandos for the same volume. A lot cheaper than even a low end all electric.
