Well...let me introduce an igil. It`s (again) an Tuva`n traditional instrument. But it can be use for all sorts of music. (for those who don`t know anything about Tuva, get yourselfe a movie "Genghis Blues".) Its an arhaic version of chello or violin. Soundboard out of rawhide. Strings are nylon fishing line. Thick string is about 120 parallel lines, other one about 80. Played with bow. Alot as cigarbox fiddle. I´m making some noise http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfNeCFP4ngM
