This is quite an exquisite piece, and well crafted. The border of the violin is very lovely.
I wish I could hear the piece for myself. (Could you possibly provide a sound sample?)

I know that wood type effects the sound as well as much as the shape of the body and type of strings, but I've always wondered how well violins made in colored woods would play, such as Ebony, Rosewood, Blue Mahoe and others, I'm sure they would look quite lovely.

This is very pretty
Normally Violins have quite a round body. what effects do putting those curves have on the sound quality?
Changing the body shape like that must change the natural resonant frequencies of the instrument.

Thanks. This one has a big warm bright sound. This shape doesn't have much impact on the sound so it has a authentic violin sound

So the modal shapes of the body don't have much effect on the sound? I just ask because my boyfriend wrote his thesis on how the bracing patterns in guitars effect the sound quality. But I really don't know anything about violin bodies.

I could only find one violin video with one sympathetic string, but lots of guitars. maybe you should make one.

does give you an idea of how it would sond though.

Well you can look for hardanger fiddle or viola d'amore they have sympatethic strings fitted.
This guy is using them very well! While being outside he has a nice spacious sound, like a reverb, they also give a rich tone.

You hear them best with headphones :)

It as a big sound, warm and clear and the symphatetic strings give it a rich and more spacious sound, like a reverb
