WOODEN UGEARS HURDY GURDY KIT
The UGears Hurdy Gurdy is an instrument quite unlike any other. It comes as a kit with everything needed for assembly. Since the parts fully interlock, no glue is required, so simply follow the instruction manual to remove the pre-cut pieces from their plywood sheets and gently click them together. Thanks to elegant woodworking and stylized workmanship, the resulting instrument is not only functional but also beautiful to look at. As it is played, display windows allow an excellent view of the gears as they work the bow and keys. Mechanical enthusiasts and puzzling experts can enjoy the challenge of assembling the pieces into a lovely and functional model. The aesthetically minded can't help but admire the elegant craftsmanship and the plucky notes. Music is played on two strings that are simple to tune. Buttons and switches control which strings are being played, and keys control the tones, resulting in a violin-like sound.
