What is a "Musical Saw"?
The musical saw, also known as the singing saw, is no different from its woodworking cousin. A cello or violin bow is drawn across it untoothed edge and the saw is bent to create its ethereal tones that are both haunting and beautiful. Musicians from around the world have mastered this commonplace-tool-turned-unique-musical instrument. Musicians that play the singing saw are known as "Sawers".
