George Kelischek String Instruments

This extremely stable medieval hurdy-gurdy is beautifully crafted from domestic or exotic tropical hardwoods by one of America's first makers of historical string instruments. Based on a 12th century Spanish design, it has three strings (one chanterelle or melody string and two drones) and adjustable tangents which permit a wide range of tunings and temperaments. Carrying straps and a fitted hard carrying case are optionally available.
