Rosebud is a very old girl, made in 1880 of maple wood. She's no Stradivarius. The maker is not even known, but she sings well & smells good. This week she's been pampered: new strings, a new end stop & a good polishing. At the moment Rosebud likes Nigel Kennedy & the Kroke Band. She does not like Pagannini at all, & agrees that he is the devil.
