Acoustic-Electric

Acoustic-Electric instruments are for musicians engaged in live performance whose primary need is to to reproduce (more or less) the sound of his or her instrument through an amplication system for more volume, a fairly "natural" sound, with minimal feedback problems associated with traditional microphones. This class of instrument can work with many off-board effects ("stomp boxes"); however, they will generally NOT work very well with the notorious difficult effects, such as octave boxes (aka octavers, octave splitters). An instrument desined to drive such effects is needed. Note: The Rickert AE4 and AE5 violins WILL work fairly well, but not perfectly, with high-quality octave boxes and similar effects, such as harmonizers and "doublers".
