Buy with confidence-
1 year warrantee
We provide a one year warrantee with all our hurdy gurdies,
but we build them to last a lifetime.
MODEL DISCONTINUED
The 'Gypsy Gurdy' has been replaced with our
'Merry Wood' model.  It was a difficult decision, but one that we made as players.  The standard 5 string arrangement of our Merry Wood will ultimately have more 'legs' to grow with the player.
