The fiddle-dee-doo

It's a globu-tubular horn, with a goatskin resonator. The tubular section of the horn is the neck and fingerboard of the fiddle, and the goatskin membrane on the globular section is the soundboard of the fiddle. It can have one or two gut strings. The blow hole for the horn is on the back of the globular section.

While it can be played as a globular horn or as a fiddle, it's most interesting when the two systems interact. For example, when blowing into the globular horn, the strings of the fiddle vibrate sympathetically.
