Thank you - did it all in the living room :)"On it's own the steel violin does have a very unique sound. I was going for a "stanky" southern sound and though it is a little more muddled and muted than a traditional wooden violin, I think with a pickup and just a touch of distortion I might be able to get what I am looking for."
