CITOLE, from B. Antelami’s sculpture in Parma baptistery, XII century.
I previously made many of these instruments with the standard technique: body/neck carved in one piece and sound board added. Now I carve the block upside-down, adding a flat back. Wooden movable frets, fixed with wax to the fingerboard. Metal or gut strings. Free tuning. Vibrating string length, cm.34.
Average price Euro 2000
