Pinky Loops
Pinky Loops are a talented string duo from Poland who combine the love of classical instruments with modern electronica. The duo is made up of Asia Czerwińska on cello and Marta Lutrzykowska on violin. They have been playing musical instruments since the age of 7 years old and both girls attended and graduated from the Bydgoszcz Academy of Music on classical instruments.

Ah ha .... thank you (Y)
I've not heard of pinky loops ...
I like the sounds of this. I just started violin myself ... I knew there was a reason to log on today .... even if it is a month later ((i))

Have often thought about taking up the violin myself. I think I could probably get a decent tune out of one without being confused with the local cats mating calls :lol:

Certainly the idea of an electric violin appeals..a silent one I mean.

These two girls, Marta and Asia are great and they always play Yamaha too :)

Give one a go :-)
Surprisingly I've only been at it for a month I haven't made any schreecing sounds, or bouncing bows,
already got to twinkle twinkle and sections of beethovens 9th, (with questionable intonation) :-)
It's a challenge and it's fun, more than I realized.

Might see if my friends at Dowina want to send me a violin. They are best known for their guitars but they also make violins, viola, cello and double bass :)

this violin looks nice:

I had a listen to dowina guitar demos on youtube, i wonder if this violin will have it's own
unique sounds to it like the guitars.

Here's an interesting article I found about choosing an electric violin.

https://www.forsyths.co.uk/content/51-h ... ric-violin

and here's an incredibly cool 5 string model (I thought those were only bass guitars) in blue!
Just a tad short of a grand (UK pounds).

Lindesy Stirling plays a 5 string.

you can get electric six string as well .....



and acoustic six string



I had looked at electrics for the silence, I decided to go with an acoustic with a brass mute.
I've read quite a few pages on the difference between playing/learning acoustic V electric.

Dowina started out making violins so it is something they are very good at :)

I think my preference would be for a silent violin mainly so i can get up to speed without annoying the neighbours...and my wife ;) I also like the idea of running it through some effects and seeing how that goes.

Need to look into this whole violin thing a lot more. It is not an area I know a lot about but have always had a passing interest. Would like to see how good I can be and whether my guitars playing skill transfers to another stringed instrument.

Thanks for those Rara,

But six strings is just showing off, ain't it? :o :lol:

To me, the family of double reed instruments has always had a special attraction.
The oboe and its larger manifestations. Not that easy to play as, I found out in my youth.

Coming at it from not having tried a violin maybe 6 strings would be a good way to start out ;)

Hmm . . ..

Six Strings may seem "warm and friendly" and familiar from a guitarist's point of view,

but bowing a single note (string) would require more precision on a curved bridge with SIX strings.

The "correct" angle is that much smaller . . . . 8O (IYSWIM)

Probably best (and cheaper) to go with 4-strings in the first instance and see how you go . . .

I think a lot depends on how you play guitar. I'm very flexible with fretting and often throw in an almost "fretless" fingering technique but having said that, your fingers are at a different angle on a violin neck than on a guitar. Also their is the challenge of how to smoothly apply the bow to the strings without bouncing all over the place. Maybe I would be better off with the Cello ;)

Yes . . .

The point I was making was just that with MORE strings, the ANGLE of the bow required to "bow" a single string becomes SMALLER - requiring greater precision of the bowing arm . . . . . . .IYSWIM . . .

Taking your point, the Viola is slightly larger, and of course the Cello is considerably larger :wink:

An option you might NOT have thought of, that might interest you as a guitarist, is the Viol . . . . .



They come in all sizes, but the Treble Viol is played upright, balanced on the lap/knees and is played Cello-style.

The bit you're gonna like is that fact that it is FRETTED (though NOT all the way up)

- so intonation is not the nightmare that it usually is with a violin, when starting out . . .

Add to that, It has SIX strings . . . . . . What's not to like? :lol:

In my mind, they are perceived as vintage instruments and might well be rare and expensive -

but I've NOT looked into that aspect . . .

Perhaps they are being made currently, and priced reasonably?

[EDIT] YES they are still made (in the UK at least): https://www.jonathanhill-luthier.com/viols

But I've not looked at the Prices :wink:
