How Do You Play a Party Fiddle Factory Stumpf Fiddle?

   The Party Fiddle Factory Stump Fiddle is played by bouncing it on the floor to keep the beat as the bells jingle, pans rattle and springs vibrate in rhythm.

Combinations of sounds can be achieved by striking the pans at various points, stroking the wood block or springs, tapping or snapping the springs, and so on.

Others can join in playing additional Stump Fiddles, Musical Washboard, Bamboo Sticks, Tambourine, Maracas, Musical Spoons, and more ...
