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!)

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom V2 recorder" on 12th December 2016.
