There isn't one yet. And I was just about to say that I don't really see stringed instruments being weapons in this game, but as I was just talking about sonic damage I suppose extreme cases might be possible. But it won't be a theme like in KoL. I'd say a musical instrument could be an accessory, but in that sense you wouldn't be playing it (because your hands are full of weapons and such), it would have to contain an effect in and of itself. A miniature player piano, for instance, could accompany you and provide appropriate mood music.
Or maybe I'm missing what you were getting at. If you'd care to elaborate? Things that help set the mood are always good, but short of having actual music play in the background (don't worry, I won't do that), I'm not sure how to do that with the concept of a violin.
Oh yes, tangent.
Something neat would be like the Mafia violin case. Something like that seems to fit the mood of the game. Which I really like, btw. I call it the "streetlights" mood. I'm not fully sure myself of what I'm getting with the violin. I'm getting at the darker side of music involving violins, as music of this period (NOIR IS THE WORD) tended to include strings in their music quite a bit. Or from what I've heard. Or that they could fit. Meh.
Hope you get what I mean.
