One Question Interviews: Sarah Neufeld

Sarah Neufeld (solo, Arcade Fire)

SPB: What are the biggest challenge you face in getting the sound you want live while playing with amplified instruments?

Neufeld: I've always had a pretty good pick-up situation on my violin, so it hasn't really been an issue. It is fun to experiment with pushing the sound of that instrument in a band context. I've found the moogerfooger delay pedal warms the sound a lot and gives it a nice gritty edge. Also, reverb is an amplified violin's best friend- its a good idea to play around with a ton of different reverb pedals until you find one that really speaks your verb language.
