Folkcraft Kantele - Hickory Body With Engelmann Spruce Soundboard
Item number 2360025ED, $245.00
This kantele was handmade in the United States by the two-generation team of Folkcraft luthiers.
The body of this instrument is hickory, which provides you with both stunning good looks and a strong, bold sound. The Engelmann spruce soundboard mellows out the the hickory body somewhat, and provides an overtone-rich sound unique to this special wood. Engelmann spruce is most commonly used for classical guitars, and when we first started using Engelmann spruce for dulcimers and kanteles, we were thrilled with the richness and transparentness that this wood provided for our instruments.
With fifteen strings, you get a full two octave D major scale. You could easily tune your kantele to play a two octave C major scale if you preferred.
To play the instrument, you can hold it upright against your body, with the strings facing away from you, or you can lay the instrument across your lap with the strings facing upwards. While the vertical position may be more traditional, we enjoy performing with the instrument on the lap, as this allows easy use of both hands while creating music.
