This larger instrument is based on the Instrument by Richard Evans of
the Welsh Folk Museum.
This example, pictured below is not carved out of a block of timber
like the original but built up in baroque violin fashion,
with a separate body and arm/head. My version has
binding/purfling to the soundboard edge.
of these crwth models the fingerboards are flat
the strings are parallel with the body as on the
original, Stringing can be either all plain gut in the medieval fashion
or baroque stringing which uses wound wire on the thicker
strings. Silver wound Thomastic strings with a synthetic core can
also be used with success on these.
