Billy the Bus PLEASE defend the SAW (59* d) PLEASE defend the SAW 13 Jul 04


G'day,

Since we seem to be defending aged folk instruments, may I put in a plug for the Musical Saw? They were just plain ornery carpenter's saws - one held the handle between your knees - held, and flexed the blade with one hand, and fiddled on the back of the blade (not the side with the saw teeth) with a violin bow...

Mumble.... Disston (USA) and Spear & Jackson (UK) were the best builders of 'Musical Saws' that I recall....

Wish I could make the sound here....

Cheers - Sam
