Ya!!!!

It's actually kind of fun to play with Octaviser, Reverb, Chorus and Delay. The five string electric makes a lot of sense especially for those who want to play both the high notes from a Violin and the lower ones from a Viola.

I had to ask my dad(HeadCheese) what a Viola-in was. 

I think that sounded awesome. Electric instruments look so cool.

Yeah, the range is great on 5 string instruments!

I made up the viola-in thing. Since it had a C and an E string, you could call it either a 5-string violin or a 5-string viola. So I just called it a viola-in! xD

I have enough trouble with four strings... facepalm

I couldn't remember the origins of the "viola-in," but knew I'd first seen it used at Fiddlerman.com. It was an opportunity to illustrate the overlap of the strings used on the viola and violin to Son #1.

I think this just answered my question. I was wondering if a 5 string violin was like a five string viola.

You can either think of it as a Viola with an added E string, or a Violin with a low C string added.
