I'd certainly never seen something like this! Haha. Pretty cool...in that "what the hell..." kind of way. :mrgreen:

I knew about Hupfield player pianos, but not that they also made a player violin too. The company is still in business, and their web site says the Phonoliszt-Violina, the "first player piano-violin duo instrument in the world," was first made in 1907.
