Altarwind introduces harmony keys

 

Altarwind Music, Oregon-based maker of hurdy-gurdies, has announced that it is now offering a third-row of keys on many of its instruments to allow the playing of harmonies.  This is a feature that was pioneered by British maker Chris Eaton and which appears to have inspired Altarwind’s design.
