Hurdy Gurdies - An Introduction to Constructing ThemRecently a neighbor mentioned his desire to possibly someday construct a hurdy gurdy. I was very curious to know what goes into it and what solutions/possibilities and plans are available, so I did some research into it.
One of the coolest customized Hurdy Gurdy constructions I've seen.
Notice how it includes 7 electronic control knobs!
- This was my favorite construction page, apparently from a Swiss instrument builder from scratch!
- This place seems to have a nice kit available.
- This person built the above kit and made a 20-minute slideshow of the entire process - 133 images!!!
- This is a person who is blogging the entire process of building their hurdy gurdy!
- Here is another website with a kit, a bit cheaper than the above one.
- This guy has lots of great information if you're deciding whether to build a hurdy gurdy from scratch or from a kit
- This website also has a kit and you can pay in alternative currency!
- This website has smaller, more guitar-like hurdy gurdies and a kit!
