Lowering the price on this "Silent Fiddle."
Seeing as how we aimed to move north again, and take an apartment in Reston, I thought I needed to figure out how to play fiddle in the early morning and late at night in close quarters.
I saw an ad for a "Silent Fiddle," a home-made rig, on Fiddle Hangout and thought I'd give it a try.
I made a brief video to test drive it. On a lark I posted it on Facebook (FB).
To be sure, I have not progressed much beyond that haphazard scratching, posted in February 2020 . . .
In the video, I'm pushing hard on the bow to make a sound, so it can be heard in this brief video, but I'll tell you: it plays soft, really quietly, and that brought a smile to my wife's face.
This would be a good starter fiddle for someone looking to determine whether they might care to stick with it.
The tuners work, the foundation is solid, the strings are relatively new (in old-time music terms), and it comes with a decent hard case and a bow.
I got this two years ago when I started fooling around with old-time fiddle.
I'd part with it for $100 - or best offer.
