Unusual and peculiar.
special characteristics of this unusual hurdy-gurdy:
body is 75 cm long and 40 cm wide, thus having an impressive size as well
as a rich and strong sound.
Mensur: 38 cm.
melody strings are unisono „d’“.
tonal capacity covers two chromatic octaves. In contrast to traditional
French build, this hurdy-gurdy’s diatonic is completely equipped with 14
trompette g’ and two drones D/G determine the main keys.
The surface (all maple build with pinewood top) was first treated with an oily priming creating a light honey colour, then lacquered with clear shellac.
