Harmony Handlyres

These versatile 12-string instruments are usually made in elm wood, have a full resonance for group playing, therapy and family use. Start with two octave pentatonic tuning - d-e-g-a-b etc. - for small children.
Then returne without changing strings, to 10-string diatonic scale (based on a, b, c' or d' major or minor) with two drone strings for harmony.
Chordal variations to stroke are achieved by double course tuning.
