I'm considering a Bohem Waldzither. Does anyone here have any experience? I know Andy Irving used one, and he's pretty much my fav mandolin player, though I don't know if that is what he is playing on the first Planxty record.
Anyway, I was thinking of tuning it CGcgd and capoing up a whole. This would alow me to use the DAd for accompanyment, but still have the mandolin range for melody. Would this tuning work, or too much tension? Last thing I need is another busted top!
