Very interesting. A new instrument designer in our midst.. Looks like an interesting project.

This is really cool. I’d love to build both. Any ideas of where I can get plans for these?

The wheelharp is actually that instrument I posted quite a while back…I was just going over the construction for some that were curious about how it worked…as soon as I can I’ll post some diagrams an photos showing the detail of the key mechanism. If I ever draw up plans for this thing, I’ll let you know. It’s still a work in progress though, and I may never get it working as well as I want.
The hurdy gurdy on the other hand, was designed by Jerry Brown, owner of musicmakers kits, and does have blueprints available. Heres a link…
Super nice folks with lots of instrument supplies…especially harps.

You sayin’ that you designed that big barrel Hurdy Gurdy? It’s fantastic! It’s also quite unique as well! Keep us posted Jon! I’m really interested in this! And thanx for the link…I’m gonna check it out.
I live in a valley and have been thinkin’ of buying some really annoying bagpipes…you know, something that would get my stepson’s 6 hounds a howlin’! A Hurdy Gurdy probably wouldn’t be loud enough but would be fun to play. I dunno…maybe by adding a guitar pickup and a good Marshall speaker system…Hmmm.
