I bought a new a couple of years ago, made by Kate Rickenbacker from Black Mountain, NC.  I call him "Orville".  I am currently using Prelude strings in Medium Gauge and the gold-plated Kaplan E on Orville.  The solid steel core of the Preludes makes for fantastic, well-balanced tone and makes cross-tuning a breeze.  I still love Helicore Heavy Gauge strings on my Robert Glier fiddle, but there is something really crisp and clean about the response and tone of the Preludes on Orville.  These fiddles all have their own personality and D'Addario makes a string that suits each one!

A D’Addario Orchestral player since 1999.

"It's hard to believe she's so talented at such a wide range of fiddling. I've seen her do it live, though. Believe it or not, she's really that good." – The Huffington Post

“A world class fiddler.” – Sam Bush

“Verch is a dynamic performer who incorporates step dancing into her show, and it always brings down the house.” – CMT Edge

April Verch steps, sings, and fiddles with a fresh and feisty approach to deep North American traditions. Touring the world to share songs from her milestone 10th album (The Newpart), Verch and her band - featuring bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters and guitarist and mandolinist Hayes Griffin - keep the community-fired celebratory side of their traditional music at the forefront, honing a keen awareness of how to engage contemporary listeners. At the heart lie Verch’s delicate voice, energetic footwork, and stunning playing, a trifecta of talents she brings together simultaneously to jaw-dropping effect. Even as she plays with the tradition she inherited in her native Ottawa Valley, Verch’s energetic and breathtaking performances speak to the heart of roots music with mature and reflective songwriting, interpreting, and storytelling.
