Harpzither in Kiendl look

Post by enslein » Tue Jan 14, 2014 10:36 am

Last year, a friend showed me his Kiendl Harpzither,
and by chance i had some measuring equipments with me and so i buildt an nearly exact copy from this Zither.
Different are the woodcarvings, because this Zither is a birthdaypresent to my girlfriend and she doesn´t like to have a nude woman in the pillar. So i made a dragon and some Rokoko ornaments. Also i use an other vernier, the original has Palisander and i took walnut and Wenge.

There are 167h of work in this Instrument.
