Just in! An inexpensive second grade/student balalaika prima for sale!!
Just in! Up for sale - a second grade/student balalaika with maple body, maple neck, and rosewood "pantzir" shield! This beautiful balalaika was built by one of the luthiers from the Tchaikovsky workshop and if you're looking for a good quality luthier-made, a well-sounding instrument without spending too much money - here's your chance to get one!
While moderately priced - this balalaika can be your workhorse for years to come! The sound of this instrument is full and bright, the neck is comfortable and it definitely a better investment than Chinese copies/mass market balalaikas that can be found at this price!
There is a hair-thin finish crack at the ink-drawn «rosette» part of the body top, which does not affect playability in any way.
Other than that — the instrument is new.
Send me a message if you have any questions about this beautiful Balalaika. The case is not included in an auction but I'll pack very well. If you'd like a hard case - I can get you a high-quality AMC case at the manufacturers' price of 150$.
