Ugears - Hurdy Gurdy Mechanical Model Kit
This Ugears Hurdy Gurdy is really cool! It looks beautiful when assembled and it is a full-fledged musical instrument. It’s easy to play dancing melodies, from folk to modern. To start the music flowing, the player just need to crank the handle with one hand to kick off a drone sound from the bourdon and melody strings. Pushing the wooden buttons with the fingers of the other hand changes the pitch of the melody string, as "spring-loaded" wooden blocks essentially shorten the string.
Everything needed for this challenging but doable DIY wooden puzzle project comes right in the box: high quality plywood boards with precision laser-cut pieces that snap out then snap together without need of glue or special tools, a metal spring that powers the mechanism, and of course a set of detailed, illustrated instructions in 11 languages. Excellent for hands-on STEM learning.
