Yamaha SV120 Silent Violin, Peavey Rage 128 amp, cheapo cables.

Sounds better than an amped acoustic through speakers, doesnt feedback at all when hooked up to a distortion pedal, and won't break nearly as easily as an acoustic. I do miss playing without an amp though. On the plus side, I can use headphones

I've never played on an electric violin? How does it compare with playing on a real violin? What music do you play?

The weight of a sousaphone is mostly on the shoulder, but it does rest a bit on your hip. I don't play one, but a good friend does and i ended up putting one on some time ago. It wasn't horrible, but I wouldn't want to go though an 8 hour practice with one of those.

My babies:

On the left my Bundy II that I've had for eight years, and on the right is my Yanagisawa A991 that I've had for 2 years. Just had my last HS concert this past Wednesday. I do need to find somewhere to play my sax at, I do enjoy it when I don't have the stress of HS band and just HS in general going after me. Now I've got college stress to worry about!

My first saxophone was a Yanagisawa tenor, an early one from the 80's, it was a beautiful horn with feather-light action and a sweet sound! I loved it. Pretty much the only new saxophone I would ever consider buying would be a Yanagisawa.

Unamped, it sounds the same as a real violin, just a lot quieter. Strings are the same, after all. It sounds a lot better amped than my acoustic with a fishman pick-up did. Playing it is the same, it's a bit heavier, but since it's just a stick its easier to get up into the higher positions. My only complaint is it fits people who are about 5'8" perfectly, and I'm 6'2"ish.

BTW -- your guitar reminds me just a wee bit of my baby:

It's quite a heavy instrument, and long too. I'm not sure of the exact weight

Beautiful instrument! Can you possibly describe how it plays/feels/sounds?
