5 Stringed Violins

I’ve made lots of 5 string violins now, mostly going down to a ‘C’ on the bottom. So they are tuned to cover violin and viola in one instrument.

Body dimensions and thicknesses are adapted to suit 5 strings. String length is the same as normal violin. The neck is a touch wider of course, and I keep the string widths the same as normal too with the use of a suitably sized bridge. This avoids crunching the strings up together and overpowering a regular violin bridge which most makers seem to feel is appropriate.

They can be based on any of my violin designs but the sound does vary according to the shape .

    UPDATE ON MANDOLIN
    Fedex have now declared that my Mandolin is lost!! How can this possibly happen!
    I cannot recommend to anyone to use Fedex.
    Sent on the 21st May by their Priority service and they have lost it. Still no tracking since Kidderminster. it should have gone to the USA.
    PLEASE PLEASE KEEP SHARING and hopefully it might turn up somewhere.
    This is a totally unique instrument, it will surely stand out anywhere.
    Thank you
