      Anyone know the difference between a Hardanger fiddle 4/4 violin (4*4 strings) vs a (4*5 strings)?
      Is it just the number of drone strings?

      Kind Regards,
      Rob Hanson

      Hi, Rob. I don’t have any knowledge of Hardanger or 4*5 fiddles…4 strings are too many for me most days…

      Anybody else feel free to chime in for Rob…

      I just looked at some Hardanger fiddle videos on U tube and some of them explain the difference. I think they are tuned differently, so you can’t just pick up a Harganger and play it like a fiddle.
