As soloist or continuo player, a "hip" plucker (historically informed performance) may easily end up with a whole lot of instruments...


At the moment I am looking for a vihuela da mano and a gothic harp. However, I admit that I also have a weakness for the different historical mandolins.


Feel free to get in touch and make me an offer!
