“I use a Yamaha VN-P1 violin pickup in combination with the L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic D.I. I may blend the pickup sound with a microphone depending on the nature of the venue and the ensemble I’m playing with..
When appropriate, I’ll use a pedal board with an Ernie Ball volume pedal, DigiTech Whammy, DigiTech XSW synth wah, boss phaser ph-1r, Boss digital delay DD-3, ProCo Turbo Rat distortion, Cry Baby wah and the L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic D.I. as a preamp with a Crate acoustic CA 125 D amp
I would be especially interested to hear any comments about my pedal setup if anyone has any thoughts or ideas.
I play an octave violin converted by Rickert and Ringholz Musical Instruments
My primary violin is currently a 19th century German violin by an unknown maker restored in 2000 by luthier Larry Brown”
