Several raw recordings of me playing a dead ca- ... uh, violin. Very high pitched on the top E string, and in tremolo with the technique of 'sul ponticello' to create the shrieking timbre. I combined all of these recordings together in Audacity for this terrific sound.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

You don't have to worry about crediting this sound if you are using it for non-commercial projects unless you want to (e.g. educational or non-profit activities), but if you use the sound for a commercial project you must credit the sound.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:
"Horror, Violin Tremolo Cluster, A.wav" by InspectorJ of Freesound.org

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom V2 recorder".

Originally recorded and edited using Audacity on 12th December 2016.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.
