Hurdy Gurdy (also known as the wheel fiddle), The strings are sounded by a wheel which the strings pass over. Its functionality can be compared to that of a mechanical violin, in that its bow (wheel) is turned by a crank. Its distinctive sound is mainly because of its "drone strings" which provide a constant pitch similar in their sound to that of bagpipes.

Ukrainian playing cards. Maybe my favourite from this deck because he is playing a donskoy ryley, (Russian: Донской рылей)  a stringed musical instrument from Russia. It is a type of hurdy gurdy, where the strings are constantly bowed by a wheel which is turned using a crank, and the pitch of the strings changed by keys attached to sliding tangents. How COOL!

Hurdy Gurdy This is an unusual instrument which seems to have bits of both the violin and the piano. It was played by turning a small wheel with one hand while the other hand pressed down on a set of keys (a bit like a piano) to adjust their pitch. As the wheel turns, it rubs against the strings (like the bow on a violin), and this makes the strings vibrate.
