Kuvat sippiviulusta? Photos of a finnish lumberjack's «sippiviulu»?

Posted on November 17, 2016 at 2:57am 2 Comments

Finnish lumberjacks played on their camps an instrument similar to One String Sam's diddley bow, sometimes in duett with a crosscut saw.

For finnish followers I add here descriptions I found on internet:

sippiviulu - säilykepurkista, laudanpalasta ja kitaran tai viulunkielestä tehty savottajätkän soitin.

Olen jopa nuorena nähnyt sahan soittoa sekä sippiviulun soittoa duettona. Sippiviuluhan on laudan päälle viritetty peltipurkki jonka yli menee rautalanka…

Hi Moritz, sadly, it doesn't surprise me, the problem with those threads is the person who initiates them can remove them at any time, taking everyone elses input with them, not the first time it's happenned, it's a pity as there was some good stuff on there, some i wanted to reference again at some time. I try not to get paranoid about these things, but there seems to be a pattern.

All I can say to this is that most of us are lazy. It takes time to go back and verify things one thinks one sees or remembers, and not everyone may be as scrupulous as that. However, Wayfinder did finally go back and look, and changed his opinion.

I suspect that most people are more interested in building a pickup, but, I can appreciate your desire to insure that credit is given where it's due.

I'm afraid I didn't pick up any Finnish as a kid, I could be persuaded that my post was a bit hasty.  People are excited about building a 'new' kind of pickup, does hyper analysis of who had what idea first help them physically make a pickup?
