V5 – 4 strings

The pictures below are from how I personally build them, but people have been doing all kinds of awesome customization with the kit. Check out these examples, or visit the Nerdy Gurdy Builders group on Facebook.

The standard tuning is:
– trumpet: C
– Melody 1: low G
– Melody 2: high G
– Drone:  C

But if you change the strings you can also set it up as D/G. The mensur is 360 mm, so you can use viola D strings for the melody.

Price for a kit: € 300

Assembled instruments are no longer available.
