it looks cool, but...

how does it sound?

although i don't know the market terribly well for those but from the hammered dulcimer and celtic harp markets - there are lots of people buying the one that looks the best.

Pretty solidly thick sound board too, zat solid wood or a veneer ply?

i like the one on the left under the big one. i mean i play guitar myself, so i am having this thing with the strings.
i wished i could play that kanun on the left side.

Gewilli,

It sounds very much like a dulcimer.

Beautiful craftsmanship.

My son had a school project where he had to make a musical instrument...so Daddy chose a autoharp......didn't turn out quiet as nice as these though. ;-)
