There are lots of interesting instruments out there, not just guitars. Always moving between the philological and the modern concept, I’ve made ancient and modern guitarrons (Catalan Countries treble guitars), baroque bandúrria, some hurdy-gurdies, some tambor de cordes (similar to tambourin du Béarn or Aragonaise chicotén)… Here I’m showing some of the non-guitar instruments I make more or less frecuently.
All the instruments will be given strung and with a semi-rigid case.
All prices are without taxes.

Folk music has been part of my life since I was a child, and folk instruments too. So, if you want to see the folk guitars I make, have a look at olzina.cat.
