Volksgurdy model Hurdy-gurdy
Our most popular full-sized model
The Volksgurdy has many of the features of a French luteback without the price. Recently redesigned, it has a sonority all its own. The curved back is much more comfortable to play than the older flat back style, and the richness of tone is far superior to the older instruments of this style. This is our most popular model, combining reasonable price with a great sound and playability.
