Playing the instrument you built yourself must be nice

I assume he has some kind of straps or supports to hold the big ones in position.  And he plays them under his chin because he is a violinist -- the reverse of the cellists occasionally seen playing violins in their laps.

Well...I don't blame him. As I'm finding out...it's surprisingly discombobulating to switch orientation. :blink:

Mightn't they be identical sextuplets with only one making the instruments? :)

This video shows that maybe in the near future orchestras will need only a few players--one violin player, one viola, one cello, one bass etc.

A lot of instruments won't be needed anymore and the instrument making and care industry will crash.

I beg to differ. With my Orchestra, as soon as we exited the Corona restrictions, tickets sold out quickly. It shows that the digital world cannot replace the live experience of a concert. In Germany, there is currently a big push against digitizing selling tickets.

I think the big instruments are Cello da Spalla (
