Your work is beautiful, and your patience must be legend. I first saw, and heard, a hurdy gurdy in 1993 at the same museum in Nurnberg you got your plans from. I have been facinated with them ever since. Yes, finished instruments are too expensive and even the kits are high. You give hope to those who want to take a different course. I would like to see how all the strings are tuned, especially the sympathetic strings.

Thanks for sharing your project.

Dear Michael

The Melody Strings are tuned to G, the mouche (top left drone) is set to G one octave lower and the Bass Drone (top right) is G
once again but again one octave lower. The trumpet String (botom left) is set to the C below the melody strings and the Tenor Drone
(botom right) is set to C one octave lower. Which leaves only the Resonance Strings which are set 2 to C and 2 to G.

I love your work....I'm 18 years old and I'm playing piano and my dream is to have a own hurdy gurdy...
My parents are from Hungary, so I love traditional hungarian Music, especially the hungarian "nyenyere"-music!
My uncle said he is going to make one for me, but where can I get the plans for it??
Could you send me some plans, or can you tell me a website, which has plans???

Thanks and WOW again ;-)
sorry for my pidgin-englisch

Thank you very much for sharing your build. I enjoy building wooden canoes and was looking for a different project. You have inspired me. How hard is it to learn to play? How different is yours from the Hungarian gyegyere? Thank you again, Bob

Your work is meticulous. I enlarged several of your photos and can tell that you take great pride in your work.
