Vioară cu goarnă – Stroh violin

Vioară cu goarnă

The Stroh violin uses a mica resonator and a horn to amplify the sound and was used in the recording industry from the late 19th century until the introduction of electronic amplification. These live on with the Romanians of Bihor region who still make them in the villages and call them vioară cu goarnă (violin with horn). Musician from Bihor, photo taken 1998.
