This one looks very much like one that someone in our folk club acquired a while ago, and Mal Denny and I have had a go at without much success. If it is the same make (and it certainly looks to be), the maker's name escapes me at the moment, it was made in the early eighties without much reference to hudreds of years of gurdy-making experience. The keys go through a brass plate, and do not have enough travel meaning that the backs of them clack on the plate.

I have managed to find out the maker. I believe that this was made by David Marshall who died in 2002.
