I use an LR Baggs pickup like Lindsey Stirling on my acoustic violin when I play with my Celtic band, and I also use my Mark Wood Stingray on stage when I play with my metal band. With two very different styles, I had to figure out how to keep the traditional Irish sound that I wanted and also get a grunge/metal sound as well. Delay is great, so is distortion. Having a great amp also helps because the settings will be right there on the amp for you. I go through a PA systems when I play with my Celtic band but with the other it’s straight up out of the amp. I would suggest lots and lots of distortion! That’s what I like and it sounds awesome with an electric fiddle!
