Over at bunnybass they just posted some pics of a Violone. http://www.bunnybass.com/bass/violone.shtml Has anyone ever played one of these?

An interesting instrument none-the-less. ~Ad <----paddles quickly back to the other side of the moat whilst the castle's minions hurl barnyard animals at him.
