Amaze your friends with the mechanical operation of the Hurdy Gurdy. Just turn the crank to activate the rosin-coated wheel which vibrates the strings. Then push the keys with your other hand to play melodies. It's a fascinating invention with a rich history from eleventh century Europe.
Has 6 strings and 24 keys. The body is made of maple, and the pegs and keys made of jujube wood.
This hurdy gurdy was made for us in China and is now the third batch that we received as we work with the maker to improve the product. Overall we are pretty happy with this hurdy gurdy. It's well made and we were pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of the adjustable wooden tangents.
Comes with nice leather strap, padded case and extra knob for the crank.
