This Roosebeck Minstrel Harp features a clean, sleek design, and a 5 panel back, and a pedestal. With 29 DuPont hard nylon strings, it produces a range from A2 to A6. With a larger sound box, it produces a deeper, fuller sound. It is approximately 40" high, and weighs 15 pounds. This Minstrel Harp comes with 29 upgraded Chelby levers for improved functionality. The design allows the lever to engage the string from the side and limit the possibility of strings lifting off the bridge pin. The red and blue colored caps allow you to quickly locate the C- and F-string levers.The lever is attached to its base by a hex bolt. A synthetic washer is spaced between the lever and base, creating a smooth and controlled, lifting action that resists slipping once engaged. The base of each lever is mounted to the harp arm by two screws, should any adjustment be necessary.The bridge pins for the Chelby levers have also been improved; they can be adjusted, in or out, by simple turning with a hex wrench. Craft with a slolid Sheesham frame with a Birch soundboard for exceptional sound and strength. Includes an Extra String Set & Tuning Wrenches. Sale Priced with Free Shipping.

The bowl is made of two alternating woods: Lacewood is a light-colored hardwood that has color similar to maple and has distinctive rays that provide what is known as a "beeswing" pattern. European spruce is used for the soundboard and, in keeping with the design of 16th-Century lutes, its soundhole is a carved rosette in an attractive geometric pattern which is cut into the soundboard itself and is not inlaid of different material. Using standard nylon classical guitar strings, it is tuned like a guitar in E4, B3, G3, D3, A2, E2 tuning. Padded Gig Bag. Free Shipping.

The Balalaika strings are tuned above middle C to: A, E, E (1st-3rd). The 1st string is the thinnest, and lays over more frets than the 2nd and 3rd strings.
