Real Fiddle by KellyCDB Real Fiddle by KellyCDB
So I made a trapezoidal fiddle. I'm passing it off as my sculpture final, though it's not really a sculpture since it's a working fiddle, built from plans by this old French dude Felix Savart (1791 - 1841), with some modifications. Yes, it works. It doesn't sound as good as my normal violin/fiddle, but I've played normal fiddles that sound worse too. Certain things went wrong during construction, and I think next time, if I can prevent those mishaps, it would sound better.

Next up, 5 string viola! :party: I just need the wood...

Hi, I very much like your violin. I am thinking of making one of these. The plans Mr Savart left are not very illuminating. I'd love to know what went wrong during the construction so that I might avoid the same.

Nice :D
Five string violin/viola? C-G-D-A-E? Or lower? Sounds intriguing...

Yep, that's the idea. It'll be viola-sized, but span the range of both. :nod:
