Rebec

The Rebec is a medieval era parent to the violin. It is from a family of 3-stringed instruments common in early England, Italy, the Middle East, etc. One of my goals for 2009 was buy a violin for my 38th birthday to learn. Well, the Rebec has caught my fascination.

Here is a link that talk about the Rebec in a little more detail than I currently know:

I have a friend that makes music instruments and is pretty good with wood working who has agreed to try his hand at making one for me. I know I can buy them complete, or as kits, but I am in no rush since my birthday isn't until August.

that's pretty fascinating! I would love to hear how it sounds if/when your friend makes you one. do you know if there are any recordings currently available, perhaps with period-style artists?

(and welcome to the other stringed instruments forum. =))

I have always loved the sound of the violin. It was one of those instrument I had always wanted to learn to play, but I just never followed through with trying. Now the music bug has truly bitten me, I am going to dive in. I am giving myself some more time with the bass guitar, though, before taking another stringed instrument. I don't want to distract myself too badly.

Just a small update. The friend building my rebec has begun the building. I will post some pictures within the week to show the progress he has made.

My Rebec is almost finished. Yay. The maker needs to use new tuner pegs. The ones he bought aren't working correctly.
