Holy expletive, it works!

28 September 2010

I am very very pleased to report that the conversion was a success – my fiddle now works and sounds like a hardingfele!! And even without the understrings, the tone of the instrument was greatly improved in the process. Details later, when I post the tweaks I still want to make… for now, pictures.

    This is so beautiful. I like to hack apart fiddles myself, so I’m giving your idea a go. Plus I, too, have always wanted a blonde fiddle.
