HURDY-GURDY: THE WORLD'S FIRST MECHANICAL MUSICAL MODEL FOR SELF-ASSEMBLY AND PLAY IS A GENUINE GEM OF THE UGEARS COLLECTION.
UGEARS HURDY-GURDY: IDEA
Inspired by the art of medieval craftsmen, enriched by smart engineering of the XXI century and created by Ugears engineers' collective imagination. Richly detailed with an eye toward romance and artistry, our version of this indelible symbol of medieval life and adventure impresses all who come across it and get a chance to play it.
The Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy is a fully fledged musical instrument. It’s easy to play: just turn a crank with one hand putting the rhythm into the music and push the keys with the other. A unique combination of good taste, wood and mechanics. An awesome gift and smart hobby idea for your friends and family.
ASSEMBLY OF UGEARS HURDY-GURDY
The model is equipped with everything needed for assembly. The quality of the parts is very high – a laser method with 0.01 mm precision is used for cutting items from a plywood board. The details are already cut out and can be easily removed from the board. All steps of its assembly are described in very detailed step-by-step colour instructions.
The Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy assembles easily and with no glue, toothpicks or special tools due to our patented plywood joints method. The assembly of the Hurdy-Gurdy includes several stages. Firstly, you put the smaller parts together to form the large blocks: the body, decks, wheel, crank, head, tuning pegs, keyboard, melody strings – which will altogether complete the whole model.
