The Monochord

Monochord Colmar

In the old town district of Colmar, opposite Schwendi Fountain, we found this man playing a remarkable instrument which he had made himself. He called it a monochord, which struck me as a strange name for an instrument which resembles three or four different instruments hobbled together.  The main body of the monochord resembles an old pedal sewing machine.

Colmar is the birthplace of several famous artists, including Auguste Bartholdi whose works include the Statue of Liberty (now in New York).
