This is a Hardanger fiddel with ten-strings, created by the violin maker master Helge Bergnord. It is designed with a bright womans head and a dark body, and an extra bass string. For more than a year I have been playing on this new instrument, and now I am really starting to get to know this wooden lady. The last month we have made some beautiful pieces
