Hi, My name is Neil, I have been lurking around the forums here quite a bit in the last weeks or so, this is my first post. I see many discussions about strings for acustic violins, but I don't see any for electric violins. so here are my two questions.
A) Do electric violins and acoustic violins use the same string types?
B) If they do not, does anyone have any recomendations for brand/type? I am new to violins. I just ordered my first violin (yes its electric, I know I'm beaking a rule, but I have roomates whom I do not wish to drive insane, as I drove my family insane when i practiced clarinet in my school days.) off of ebay, it is an electric and is missing some strings, so I am planning to replace all of them at once for even wear and tear. Any comments and or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
