The Finger Violin is made of two violin-shaped wooden plates with five piano strings through them. One of the plates is held behind the left arm to keep tension, the other, which has a contact microphone, is held under the chin just like an ordinary violin. The strings are fastened in wooden rings on the left hands finger tips.
