I'm on a bit of a musical instrument-making spree at the moment, and here is a funky old vielle to complete a set of three types of medieval instruments following my Medieval/Renaissance-Style Piano and Lute. It's found in the Activities section in Buy Mode, where the violins are found, and costs 425 simoleons.

This ancient basic rough-and-ready instrument is in three funky textures as below. It has geostates, so it sits on a stand which disappears when your sim uses the violin and then reappears when he/she puts the violin back down.



In use, my sims look really miserable playing them at first:



I do find it hilarious how terrified the sims look when first learning to play violin. (The lutenist is also looking tense at all the squeaky violin-playing surrounding her):



But finally they level up and are looking a little happier:



Thanks for looking, hope you'll find this useful to add to your medieval musical instrument collection.
