currently in stock and ready for immediate delivery.
last few years, I have been developing hurdy-gurdies based on using
natural gourds for the bodies. This all began with a whim to build a
hurdy-gourdy . I was
immediately impressed by the tone, volume and projection of the first
one and subsequent gurdies to the same design have proved that the
concept is good.
Each instrument is unique as it must be designed around the shape of each gourd. This means that the build time is longer than that of my regular designs. I do have so much fun building them that I am not charging for the extra time involved .
I have 5 very happy customers around the world who own my "gourdies" and have found no problems with them.
Here are the ones that are currently for sale :
