    Muy coolioso.

    Tell us more.....

    Why did you build it? Do you play one? Will you build more.

    Fill us in on the Wiki article...

    Nice! My panduri is, I think. just a piece of tourist junk ... not really playable, or at least the relationship between frets and bridge doesn't lend itself to playing according to any scale system that I recognize. What inspired you to build one?

    Sorry I previously missed the above messages. I will build more if commissioned to do so. I built this because I've wanted one for a while, after being inspired by youtube videos etc.

    Check out her website. Jo builds all sorts of interesting world music instruments and posts them from time to time here.

    Interesting tunings (from the wikipedia article):
    Three-stringed panduri: G-AC# or E-B-A# or A-C#-E

    Some sounds:

    The above videos are great! There's a group I like called Trio Mandili who play a panduri.

    Here's a video of me attempting to play the above one, as a sound sample of it:


    Edit: For some reason I can't seem to post the video here, so here's a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZYawMlAJKU

    Jo: I am always amazed at the variety of instruments you build. I looks forward to your posts because I always learn something new.

    Let's see if this video works:

    Trio Mandili rocks!

    I found a very nice-looking panduri on ShopGoodwill of all places, with what appears to be a more Western-style chromatic fretboard. I actually haven't taken it out of the shipping box yet, but I'm excited.
