E verything reasonable has already been thought out. One only tries to think it again.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A modern 20th century instrument directly comparable to French hurdy gurdies in terms of stringing and range of tones. A flat backed instrument, lute shaped silhouette with a curved sounding board. A strong, clear tone.
An ideal instrument for beginners because of the advantageous price structure.
