This instrument was originally built as a replica in 1978 and has been very recently refurbished by Hungarian hurdy-gurdy maker Robert Mandel. One of the attached photos is the image of the original instrument that was used to build the instrument.

It is for sale in the UK for £1500 which includes the shipping costs (Shipping is arranged via a tried and tested, therefore trusted Hungarian company who has experience shipping delicate instruments. Shipping time is variable depending on their schedule, but should not be more than 2-3 weeks)
