Documenting the curious world of the hurdy-gurdy.

AntiQuated Strings - build your own gurdies

Graeme McCormack emailed me to let me know about his site - AntiQuated Strings - that documents a number of beautiful hurdy-gurdies that he has made - including one recycled from an old acoustic guitar body.  What’s more, he has detailed and beautifully drawn plans for his Sinfonye and Oud Backed Hurdy-gurdy which you can download for free.  Even if you don’t attempt to make the instrument, they would make a great poster for walls of your practice room.

Great site, well worth a visit.
