Based on the 15th Century organistrum, we have created an intricately detailed, fully functional version of this medieval instrument. The finished model looks remarkably akin to the original 16th century hurdy gurdy, giving it a wonderfully medieval aesthetic. This wooden attractive and educational model has a highly detailed exquisite décor of the body crafted in romantic style and turns the assembly and playing process into an exciting game and brings you hours of pleasure and fun.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. It will include some tablature with the kit to get newbies off to a flying start. The Hurdy-Gurdy comes with everything needed for assembly. All the pieces are precut into the plywood boards and are easily removed for assembly following the detailed instructions provided. The only non-wood parts, by necessity, are the two strings that rub against the crank powered wheel and the rosin used to wax it.Self-assembly, no glue neededModel size: 15, 7*6.5*8, 7 inPackage size: 14, 9*6.7*2 inParts count: 292 11122487 4820184120648 3.84lbs 0.00 0.00 0.00

Anyone who enjoys building models and legos is going to have fun assembling this. It's impressive that it all goes together with no glue. Make sure you follow instructions regarding sanding and waxing pieces, and it should go very smoothly. I stained the pieces of mine before assembly to add some color and have a more beautiful end product. It's a very attractive product in the end. And it is playable. The range is limited, but you can tune and play it, and there are a number of songs included with online demonstration videos

Fun to build and amazing that it works! However, don't expect to be playing beautiful music with it, watch video demonstrations to see.

Not sure how others had issues. I put this together while having a concussion. Took me longer as I had to stop periodically. Everything functions. Can't wait till sound stops bothering me to play it!

Got for my brother since I couldn't afford to dish out the 4 grand for a decent real one and he was psyched that it actually plays. I'd say its worth it for anyone with a passing interest, wouldn't give to someone who was PASSIONATE about actually playing a real one as I imagine the sound is probably not great.

I love all sorts of musical instruments. Especially the unusual ones. So I bought this. The parts were sturdy and well designed. The laser carving was accurate and parts were easy to pop out. Though you have to be a bit gentle with the smaller parts. The kit does include a special tool for this.I gave a four star for Ease Of Assembly not because it's hard to assemble. But because you do have to be very aware of the delicacy of smaller parts and pay close attention to the instructions. That being said, the instructions were clear and easy to understand once you've read what all the symbols mean.This is my third Ugears kit and I plan on getting many more. When assembling these, be sure to thoroughly sand and wax all parts that call for it. I used a Dremel with a very small spiral bit to sand inside the gears. Made that process much easier. I also opted for actual paste wax instead of the included candle wax which was sometimes hard to get into small spaces. It applies easy with a cotton swab.Once assembled, you have to tune the instrument. There is a video that demonstrates that. There are apparently several tunings you can use. I suggest adjusting the strings with the least amount of pressure on the wheel, while still maintaining the proper sound. This rests on your lap when playing and doesn't weigh much. So if there is too much resistance while turning the wheel, it will shift back and forth on your lap.This is a fun and beautiful instrument. But not a professional instrument by any means. So don't expect it to sound like a Hurdy Gurdy costing thousands. It does however allow for fairly accurate tonal quality and tuning.This is a well designed and beautiful kit that is fun to play and looks great on display. It satisfies both your crafting passion and musical curiosity. I highly recommend this product for anyone who likes to work with their hands and have a love for music.

I purchased this hurdy gurdy as a gift for my girlfriend and we really enjoyed putting it together just pay attention to the instructions , each piece is very precision-cut easy to remove and fits tight. If you are detail oriented and enjoy puzzles I definitely recommend it.

My 16 year old love building UGears kits. He's made several others including some trains and locking boxes. He had fun building this one. It looks pretty cool and works, although I hope that's not what a read Hurdy Gurdy is supposed to sound like
