Antique style 2 String Jouhikko

A quick sound sample of one of the older type 2 string Jouhikkos,

Just put the strings on today,

 A and e tuning for this quick sample.

I am not a bowed instrument player but it gives a quick idea of the sound, This museum replica is a smaller instrument in size with a tiny soundboard,  half the volume of my modern 3 string Jouhikko that has  a longer and deeper curved soundboard with soundpost,

The plans for this are on my Lyre making DVD

Or available separately as a download here:
