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.

Unzip the zip file and move the .package file to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder.
