Restored 1901 Pajot lute-back for sale

Postby Geoff Turner » Sun Feb 13, 2011 6:13 pm

Due to unforeseen financial circumstances, I am having to sell my Pajot lute-back.

Restored by Neil Brook in 2009, it was built by Jean-Baptiste Pajot at the turn of the twentieth century. I am looking for £2500 for it, which is what I paid. I am open to sensible offers.

It has its original wheel, has sympathetic strings, and is currently tuned to D/G, (but could with a couple of new strings be changed to G/C).

It is in one of Neil's grey cases, which can be seen here - http://www.hurdy-gurdy.org.uk/case.html

I have also attached a couple of pages from a Pajot catalogue from around that time.

Here is a link to Neil Brook playing Sir Sydney Smith's March on it (with his kind permission).

Sorry to hear that Geoff, but I'm sure you'll find a good home for your Pajot soon :) .

Thanks Bridget, it is a lovely instrument, but it is not my main one, therefore it is the one to go when money needs raising.

Due to an almost complete lack of interest from forum members, this has now been put on Ebay.

Hi Geoff,
sorry to hear you haven't had much interest expressed in the Pajot. I am sure people are interested, but I think it's the time of year and the recession. I saw your auction: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Hurdy-Gurdy-/1206 ... 1c199ee030

It might be worth putting a for sale ad as your status on Facebook, it would get around to the right people if we pass it on.
Best wishes
Scott
