I wish you could see me. I’m sitting here with my mouth open catching flies. Wow. I can’t even comment on the construction because I know absolutely nothing about it, but it definitely looks complicated. The sound is marvelous. Haunting. I wish I had one to fool around with.

OK, went and did a little research on the net about the wheelharp and came across you on a page and the story. I’m even more impressed at your unique design for this type of instrument. http://www.oddmusic.com/gallery/om33250.html

I have no idea what this is, how you made it… i can’t even decide what it sounds like. But i know i REALLY like it. Do you have any video of it being played? i’d love to see it in action.

CJay, I’ll try and get some video of it working-It won’t be anything fancy, but maybe will show how it works.

Looks like a hurdy-gurdy, sounds like one too. Good work.

Absolutely mezmerizing! What a unique and beautiful instrument. I could sit here and listen and watch you play this for hours.
I wonder if harder, exotic woods would change the acoustics on this? I’ve always admired luthiers now this is another magical instrument I hope to hear more of.

Dude, that’s so beautiful, that even if it doesn’t work acoustically, it’s still a work of art.

That is awesome! A large hurdy gurdy styled instrument. I can’t even imagine how many hours you have in the design and build on this!
