Tuning Chart

Post by jbug_zither » Fri Jun 15, 2018 12:36 pm

Dave -

You used to have on the zither.us site a tuning chart for both Munich and Viennese. However, all I can find is an explanation of how to tune a zither... fortunately, I printed out the chart years ago. It was looking kind of ratty, but I was able to photocopy it and had the new one laminated at Staples. It is nice for the 'visual' learner ;)

That sounds exciting but I have pressed every button possible and do not see your chart.
Did you post it to us?
Or just for our information?
When you say tuning chart, i assume that is to inform us what strings should be tuned to.
I do have a modern one but would like to see your olde worlde tatty one?

Thanks for posting

Hi June - I wonder if this might be the tuning chart you referred to. It's actually on a different zither website.

Hi June, I believe Tom is correct. I don't recall ever having posted a chart for Viennese tuning.
