Sorry, this item has sold.

A Kirar or Krar. My latest creation.
It's an instrument originating from Ethiopia or Eritrea, it uses a Pentatonic tuning of 5 notes, D E G A C (C). The 2 Cs are an octave apart.
It's made from an original cigar-box and a pair of hand-turned posts.
It has a humbucker pickup with a volume and tone control.
It's played by placing fingers on the strings from the back and lifting a finger or thumb off the string to play the note, while strumming like a guitar. There are tutorials on youtube explaining a lot better than me!!!
This is a one off, unique instrument, I made it, to make use of the hand-turned posts that I had hanging around.
95cm long, 35cm wide
