This is the Stumpf fiddle, a versatile folk music instrument that makes one musician sound like a five-piece bluegrass band. Like its European predecessor the rhythm stick, the Stumpf fiddle has a rubber ball at the base of its shaft that produces a foot-stomping, percussive beat as the player bounces it on the ground. In mid bounce musicians use the included drumstick to play melodious chimes, clangs, and twangs by striking the built-in pie tin cymbals, aluminum bell, or wood block, or by sliding it along the spring coils that run the length of the shaft. Six bells at the base of the shaft add tambourine-esque jingles to the fiddle's beat. Each fiddle is handcrafted by an artisan who carves the shaft from pine and cedar and affixes the aluminum bell and other sound makers by hand, ensuring the highest performance for years of foot-stomping hoedowns. 46 1/4" H x 9 1/2" W x 7 1/2" D. (5 1/2 lbs.)
