Three Grammys, hundreds of instruments, millions of ideas...


Bowed Strings

Pictured here first are a pair of West African rebabs (primitive two string fiddles), then a Turkish spike fiddle, followed by a bass viol da gamba which I bought damaged and repaired. I usually tune the third string of this instrument up one semitone and play it like a bowed guitar. And finally we have not a bowed string instrument, but actually a bowed tine instrument: a nail violin. Larry Pogreba and I built this from an 18th century illustration.
