The Violone

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [DB]' started by Ad Nauseam, Apr 18, 2002.

  1. 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? I thought that the oddest thing about them was the (looks like catgut) frets. An interesting instrument none-the-less.
