Pictures of My Grandfather's Fiddle

Thursday, March 1, 2012 @11:33:00 AM


John Hale Fiddle 1927I wanted to share a couple of pictures of my fiddle that was made by my grandfather, John E. Hale.  It was completed on March 16, 1927 - two years before my mother was born, and twenty-six years after he lost his right arm in a saw mill accident.

It's a beautiful instument.  I don't know what wood it is made of.  I hope to find out.  Everything is original to the fiddle, except for the strings.

The original bow and case have been lost.  I have ordered a new bow to start playing on, but I hope to get a more professional one later.

John Hale FiddleThere are more pictures of this fiddle on my homepage.  I hope you will take a moment and look at them.

Peace,

Steve
