Nice work, sounds great for just one string too!

Nice. Reminds me of the sound of a bowed psaltery.

Just finished a 1 string fiddle, inspired by your build and Vid posting a little while back, will post Pics some time today, its stringless at the moment, awaiting delivery of some cheap Violin strings, found the Bow I have, but still looking for the rosin, thanks for the inspiration to do a build :-)

Hi Matthew. Here’s one I just took. Also have several others just posted to Pictures.. if you want to see all my fiddles go to my page and look up “box fiddles” in my albums.

Dave do you have a picture of yours I can look at? I am getting psyched to make a better one stringer myself, now that my playing is starting to catch up.

You motivated me Matthew. I got out my 3 string viola last night and sawed away the evening. I found my old rosin block and got my cello bow going. I think i’ll Make a one stringer soon. Thanks Mat the Motivator.

GREAT SOUNDING LITTLE FIDDLE

Comment by Andries D. EKER on February 21, 2019 at 9:41pm

hi ye Matthew this one sounded magical, i believe you record whit your laptop /PC ,its got this electronic vibe somehow, after your last video, i bowed my moviecan diddley and the sound was amazing ,but im not yet comfortebele whit my way of playing i like my neck to bee free so i can move around quick, but the only way to do that is to place it like areal violin under the chin, but my model does not let that, so there is some work to get that sorted out ,but your video are verry stimulating ! Thanks !

Plaintive and primitive sounding fiddle Matt and those are both real good things!
