Miscellaneous Stringed Instruments




First we have a Turkish oud I purchased in Istanbul while performing there in 2006, then a five course Cittern (the big brother of the mandolin), a 36 string harp originally made by Bruce Robinson and David Bishop (rebuilt and modified by myself and David Werner), an East Indian sitar, followed by a West African Kora (harp), followed by an Early American style banjo with no frets and gut strings (notice the similarities with the Kora, both with skin stretched over a gourd),  then a Hurdy Gurdy which I built with the help of a few luthiers much more skilled than myself,  a pair of single-stringed Bengali gopichands, and finally a vintage Sho-bud pedal steel and a vintage Oahu lap steel.
