After reading some of the recent threads here on the 5-string violin, I was wondering what players thought of it.
Is there any advantage in having one, if you are playing Irish traditional music (or any fiddle music)?
I was thinking it would enable you to play in more keys. What about the neck width and string spacing? It is still comfortable to play?
Does it sound significantly different from a 4-string violin?
Any feedback is welcome! Thank you.
