Lowering the price on this "Silent Fiddle." And changing the location - in case anyone in Durham NC might care to stop by and get this unique fiddle.

Seeing as how we aimed to move north again, and take an apartment in northern Virginia, 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.
