A number of one string phono fiddles are still in evidence, but are still very rare to come by. They were used as novelty items and stage acts and are easy to play! They work on a flat circular cellophane diaphram, a crude metal bridge glued directly to the surface. They were held and played in the cello position and tuned variously to suit the player. Strohviols and Howson were the most prominant makers. This Howson is in excellent original condition and working!
