Hi Metalheads

Do you play electric violin or cello? Any distortion effects to recommend?

Here's a video clip of me experiementing with distortion on my Chin-Cello. It looks like a violin, but sounds like a Cello plugged into distortion. haha

Well, you cannot go wrong with the Ibanez Tube Screamer (original or re-issue, same deal ;)
I think that's exactly what the Apocalyptica gents use.
