Uncommon Instruments

#DidYouKnow that today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day?

And, whilst we specialise in the less common guitars, there are hundreds of instruments you’ve likely never heard of; things like the contrabass balalaika, easily the least unusual of the instruments you can research. It has a large triangular body and is either played with the fingers or leather plectrums. Or why not try this version of a viola with added keys?

And whilst dulcimers might be considered uncommon, they’re not so rare that we don’t have a Schatten Design pickup for them. In fact, we have two!  Click here to view,

So should your uncommon stringed instrument need a pickup, feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
