Instrumentarium

As soloist or continuo player, a plucker with interest for HIP (historically informed performance practice) may easily end up with a whole lot of instruments...

 

At the moment I am looking for a vihuela da mano and a medieval harp. I admit that I also have a weakness for historical mandolins. Feel free to get in touch and make me an offer!
