Violele a.k.a. Ukulin
Do you play uke but have aspirations of becoming a violinist as well? Here is an in-between option we've been calling the Violele or Ukulin.
This is a previously-loved violin that was rescued from the scrap heap. It has been re-assembled with all it's found parts. The only original piece not used was its original painted maple fingerboard, which has been replaced with a radiused ebony fingerboard. This new fingerboard is now 1-3/8" wide at the nut and fretted to the 12th fret. The beech bridge is also new.
The Violele is designed to be plucked or strummed but not bowed. When played in this fashion, it gives the pizzicato sound of the violin, short and percussive rather than sustained. As it has the C6 uke tuning, it is very easy to play along with your favorite tunes.
