Can you plug silent violins into amps/electric violins in headphones

by Raven N.

I was looking at buying an electric violin and then noticed they also sell silent violins. If they both plug into a cord wouldn't I be able to use amps and headphones that use the same cord?

-----------------

Hi,
You can with some brands. I don't play electric violin myself, but based on research you need a violin with a pre-amp built in to use headphones with it. You can't just expect it to work with headphones.

There is some excellent information about halfway down the page on this site about this: http://www.maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/322255-silent-practice-violins/

Good luck!
