We were fortunate enough to have Shawn Craver play several of our instruments in a living room setting one evening, and we captured his performance on a hand-held mp3 recorder. As a result, variations in sound and touch of the instruments are because of variations between instruments, not because of differing musician styles.

Also here are sound clips from Richard DiAdamo, retired violinist from the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and Scott McMillion, a talented bluegrass musician formerly with the west-coast band 78RPM.

I hope to add to these clips as time goes on, so check back.
