Fomen 5 Chord Zither


Shipping to United States: Free

A 5 chord zither - "Fomen", made by Ernst Lindberg, Munich, W.Germany 1950s.
Great condition, probably spent most of its life in its box in a cupboard!
5 sets of chords, each with 4 strings. There are 21 melody strings. 41 strings in total.
This one is ideal if you want to use Etienne Delavaulx's alternative tuning. I tune all my zithers before they leave my workshop, so let me know if you want the traditional tuning or Etienne's.
Comes in its original box and has a tuning key. Also a few fact sheets on how to change a string etc.
Dimensions - 50cm x 35cm
