ABOUT THE STUMPF
Legend (or maybe fact) has it that the modern stumpf fiddle was conceived by Charlie and Bob Cronin, along with a gentleman named Bill Schwartz. These guys met at a Packers game in Green Bay, Wisconsin with rhythm sticks in tow, and combined their efforts to market their instruments by way of The Fiddle Factory.
We do not know much about the dates of conception but we do know that Sheboygan WI, became the Stumpffiddle capital of the world in 1979...so that's somethin'
