Sojing Electric Violin & Delay/Echo Pedal

I saw Marc Hennessey live yesterday and the hunger for a looping pedal grew exponentially. Maybe there’s something similar to play with for us poor students taking a while to save up? Let’s look at what I’ve acquired throughout the years…

Ah, enter the Ibanez DE-7 Delay/Echo pedal.

Now which violin would Mr. Ibanez like to play with today?

Well, Fran (Yamaha SV-120) already got a turn so it’s time to feature the Sojing electric violin. I’ll tell you more about Sojing in a review post though. She’s quite interesting in that I modified her with rosewood pegs and an adjustable bridge to make her several times better. For now, Sojing, meet your new friend Ibanez DE-7 Delay/Echo pedal.

    The looping pedal video was great – I love the irish jig!

    I’d love to see a post sometime about how you got into electric violins, it seems to be a pretty unique hobby…

      I wish I had a looping pedal – I just used a delay pedal (that a friend sold me for cheap -$15!) and carefully timed my playing so it would sound OK. You can delay the sound coming out of the amp with that pedal, and it repeats only a few times, getting quieter with each repeat. Kind of like an echo in a cave. Time it right and you can play a round (like singing a round of “row row your boat”) with yourself.

      Thank you! I’ve always wanted to try a Stingray violin – nice. I just used the Ibanez DE-7 Delay/Echo pedal this time around. It’s one of my favorite pedals to play, probably until I get that looping pedal I’ve been saving up for.
