They all came back wounded and hurt and crying and so on.

Thanks guys, after I lost yet another dog, I found myself back in my all time favorite fiddle , the one that my mother gave me. It's loud and brilliant, exactly what I wanted in the first place!

Since you like to cross tune, you might try tuning the low string DOWN several steps to a low D, and your high string down one step to match D as it is finger Edom the A string. This is DDad tuning, sometimes referred to as Dead Man's Tuning. Makes your fiddle sound bagpipe-ish for this tune (and others).

On my fiddles it just sounds really floppy when I've tuned that D down that low...I've heard others sound great...so...if it doesn't work, could be the fiddle or type of strings...I don't know...but it's a neat idea if it works for ya.

Also love the tone of that fiddle, I think it sounds quite rich.

Yes, it is a little 'floppy' (pretty much on everyone's fiddle, btw) but it still makes that nice low drone and well worth the extra effort it takes to tune it down.
