 FOR SALE - Pete Shaw is looking to sell off 9 assorted good quality violins, and pictures will appear here in due course. The are many different ones to choose from, including some with jack sockets. One of them is a Sonic Violin Chincello with 5 strings and built-in pickup - a marvel in that through an amp it sounds exactly like a real cello, but with the added convenience of the playing speed of a violin, and the top E string to save so much playing up the neck. These are no longer available - I paid £695 a few years ago and will sell for £395.  There is also an 'ordinary" 4 string Sonic Classic; a superb acoustic violin with electro pickup built in, current RRP £995, Pete Shaw's price £495. Also for sale, a real 5 string cello which plays acoustically or through the built-in pickup and EQ unit. Included with that is a bow and a hard, wheeled case. The cello suffered damage and has been professionally repaired. Price £295.    No offers, except for multiple buys. 01778 571563
