This is a large mountain zither with a big sound. It is distinguished by one flat side edge and a wide curved edge on the other side. This instrument is unique in that it has eight strings: four running over the fretboard (including a bass string), and four unfretted drones (including a bass string), enabling full chording on the fretboard together with full drones. This capability produces a very traditional and highly resonant sound. The black walnut back displays a beautiful 2" diameter decorative wooden inlay, and the Western red cedar top includes a delicate handcrafted wooden "lace" rosette. This instrument is tuned with zitherpins and a T-wrench. Without a 6-1/2 fret. 2-1/2" x 9" x 36"
