Indeed they are! The degree of expression that can be achieved rivals that
of a blown reed instrument, such as the clarinet. However, a Hohner Marino
VI has lots of reeds and the notes can be snatched and decorations played,
but they cannot reproduce the drive and _bounce_ of a good Strathspey
fiddler. I play both instruments, as well as listen very critically to
recordings and whilst I might think Sandy Nixon is great, I do love having a
fiddle in a band to bring the best out of Strathspeys.
