Hello all, I wasn't sure where this thread would fit best, so I put it here. If there's a better spot, mods please move it, thank you! I'm a cellist,starting in Junior High and going through HS. After graduation, I switched to an electric cello, a Cecilio, it being cheaper and smaller. The problem is, it's cheaper, and so the pickup isn't the best. It's workable, but it has some annoying moments. I'm running it through a old Vox Pathfinder 10, and I believe it's on its last legs. It's also being run through an effects loop. I'll put pictures at the end. Now for my question (sorry for the long explanation): What should I upgrade first? The pickup, preamp(I think), or amp? Now, I'm new to all this gear stuff, being taught in an orchestra setting. I have read other posts about amps, and talked to a couple guys in some local music stores about it, but I'm still completely lost as to what I should be looking at. I need a larger sound, but should that be my priority? Thanks for reading, and your comments!
