Just in! Amazing sounding concert grade balalaika N1 with ebony neck!
Dear buyers! Here's your chance to purchase a great-sounding, super high-quality Russian modern concert grade balalaika prima N2 made by Khulakhov, one of the best living balalaika builders and top-tier Tchaikovsky factory luthier.
This balalaika is brand new and was completed in Dec 2021. The body is made of the beautiful aged flame maple with natural shellac finish, the neck is ebony, the body top wood is spruce. The neck has a modern thinner profile and will be comfortable for both adults and children with very little effort required to keep the chords pressed. The fretwork and overall built quality are absolutely flawless. It's as accurate as if was made by a CNC machine, but it's a 100% handmade instrument.
The sound of this instrument is loud, wide, open highs, warm low end, and other concert grade balalaika qualities. This instrument is probably the best balalaika money can buy no matter how much money you're going to spend and yes - it is as good as top Russian balalaika players use on stage.
All instruments that we sell are auditioned by maestro Alexander Tsygankov himself (my dad, who is People's Artist of the Russian Federation and a professor at Gnesin's Academy of Music).
