"A Rubbertramp Opus" was written and recorded with these unusual instruments, built by Jude Matthew Wright:
Guitarviol: A guitar-formatted bowed string instrument. Simply put, a hybrid of guitar and cello. Built by Jude under apprenticeship of Jonathan Wilson. For more info, visit togamanguitars.com.
The Violele: A hybrid of viola and ukulele. Can be held in a more comfortable position than the viola, like that of a ukulele. Can be played with a bow or strummed. Tuned like a ukulele. For more info, click here.
The Bojo: A hybrid of fiddle and banjo. A punchy sounding instrument with the unusual ability to play either single notes (one octave in a single position), or three notes simultaneously for lush arrangements. For more info, click here.
