I am currently doing a project invovling violin right now and in past projects I was never happy with the violin sound I got. I have tried C451s but they always seem to have a harsh edge to them. The best I have come up with so far is using a 414 about 12" above the scroll angled towards the bridge. I would like to get that fat robust sound without the edge. EQ just seems to dull the overall sound. I realize the player and instrument has a great deal to do with the tone, but I think technically I am overlooking something. Any thoughts? Anybody?
