UGEARS HURDY GURDY MECHANICAL INSTRUMENT KIT
Looking for the perfect gift for a musical maestro that already has every conceivable instrument? This Hurdy Gurdy is perfect!
This centuries-old instrument provides two levels of fun. First, you build it yourself. No glue or fancy tools here, no sir! Just pop the pieces out of the wooden sheets, work in the bourdon strings and assemble to create this fully mechanical piece. The pieces are made from sustainably sourced high grade plywood, and you've got all you need in the box ready to go.
Once built, the real fun begins! Wind the crank and play the keys to make a merry tune. This instrument originates in the 15th Century, but this model is carefully crafted to replicate a 16th Century model. There's some rosin wax included to keep the strings moving well, and the booklet includes sheet music and playing instructions so anyone can learn to use this forgotten tool of joy.
It will sit upright nicely with the stand, perfect to put your hard work on display. A great gift for music enthusiasts!
