Hello. I have lute-backed hurdy gurdy made by Hungarian luthier Nagy Balazs in 1999. I bought it with the help of Catherine Keenan in Toronto in 2001. Since then, despite her kind help and a few 'getting started' lessons, while I have enjoyed annoying the neighbours from time to time I have never got to grips with the instrument. So the time has come to sell it . It was attended to last year by luthier Chris Allen in Merthyr Tydfil and given a clean bill of health. It has 6 strings (2 chanterelles, trompette, fly, and 2 drones).
I live in Bristol.
Here is a photo of the instrument - I can send more.
It comes with its original hard-shell case, a strap, some cotton. I also have two books, 'Hurdy-Gurdy Method' by Doreen Muskett and 'The Hurdy-Gurdy' by Philippe Destrem & Volker Heidemann. These can be sold with the gurdy or separately if someone is interested.
