U-Gears Hurdy-Gurdy Model (Craft It Yourself)
The Hardy-Gurdy by Ugears is a full-fledged musical instrument. It’s easy to play dancing melodies, from folk to modern. To start the music flowing, the player just need to crank the handle with one hand to kick off a drone sound from the bourdon and melody strings. Pushing the wooden buttons with the fingers of the other hand changes the pitch of the melody string, as “spring-loaded” wooden blocks essentially shorten the string. Ugears will include some tablature with the kit to get newbies off to a flying start.
The Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy brings the unforgettable time of working together on things that are popular among people of any age. Just put it together and you are ready to throw an original party giving a new spur to whatever music you like – whether it is folk or modern – playing your new unique Hurdy-Gurdy solo, duet, trio or quartet.
