    I prefer both acoustic and electric violin I have the violin band pickup which wraps around the body of the violin and I have a 6 string electric violin that looks like one of Mark Wood’s Sabre’s which I bought from Ebay.

    I think that an acoustic violin is very useful for classical performances, and to even start learning to play the violin at a early age or as an adult, because the sound you get is very pure. Now, if you’re already a violinist, and you perform in rock concerts or things like that, an electric violin gives a different vibe to the performance, a cool sound and opens the possibility to have many sound effects. it’s very cool 🙂

    Both! I love being able to play on my regular violin, but it gets kind of lonely, so I was happy to have gotten an entry level electric and effects pedal with a looper so when I get he chance, I can create my own accompaniment 🙂

    I tried attaching a pickup to my violin and it deadened the violins resonance… it was dead. So for amplification (a microphone would hinder my “dancing”) I would go for the electric.

    William, you know there are microphones that clip onto the violin, right? Perfect for your “dancing”.

    Both electric and acoustic violins are needed. In process of learning acoustic is better one. But for doing a rock kind of performance with all sound effects an electric one will be better. For classical violinists acoustic violin is enough for their performances. I always prefer acoustic one for learning stuffs and I recommend that to beginners as well.
