Where to find a cittern?

Postby Foxe » Sat Nov 20, 2010 7:54 pm

Apart from the very beautiful and elegant Morillo citterns which seem to be very freely available on the market, are there any other recommended or suggested palces to find citterns (of the historic variety, not the modern type)?

I rather fancy one, but I'm not ready to invest over a thousand in an instrument I don't yet play...

try Busy Mole at http://www.busymolemusic.co.uk/

Didn't spot one on the website but I believe they make most of the instruments themselves

Thanks for the pointers. I may just add a cittern to my 'things to make' list, which means I might have one by 2032 or so.
