For the price okay
The instrument came almost ready to play with me, that is already praiseworthy, since certainly not everyone knows how to build something like that. The processing is fine at first sight. The vortices hold, the strings are not torn and now hold for quite a while. The thicker of both I have on D, the thinner on A tuned, thus in the quintessential distance similar to a violin. The bow must be threaded between the two strings, once the hair is completely "unscrewed" and then again attached, which is a bit necessary for the first time, since the bow hair must be colophoned from both sides. Overall, the bow is only quite ok, so it is not easy to produce a clean sound. With a violin bow I had more success, even if the curvature inside is somewhat hindered here, since the hair is only stretched with the hand while playing. Overall, the performance is different than you would expect, you can hold the instrument quite sideways and can then paint a string (I recommend watching a few videos). Altogether I got only a rather crooked sound at the beginning, but with some practice it gets better. For example, I recommend using a better rosin. With a little feeling you can then play a simple pentatonic technique after a few attempts, the exact distances to be taken is, of course, as with almost all stringed instruments, not so easy. Altogether a difficult instrument, even if it has only two strings! If you do not touch it anyway it is still a nice decoration, I am not dissatisfied. Finally, it must be remembered that it is not a professional instrument and quite cheap. And sometimes it takes back again, if only to try a bit of experimental music. ;)
