Interesting instrument and thanks for sharing. Is your friend hoping to be instrumental in its second revival?Scot Tremblay wrote:...these odd guitar/lute/harp/? instruments which were popular during the last part of the 18th and early part of the 19th century. There was a whole "Back to the Greeks" cultural revival going on at the time and luthier Edward Light was quick to take advantage of the wave.

I don't really know what to optimum number of string would be, I'll have to find out but the way our musical system is laid out I suspect many more than 10. The popularity of the 10 string instrument is that it is a manageable number and it's a number that fits most easily into our human psyche...10 finger/toes, 10 cents to a dime 10 dimes to a dollar, ten times ten dollars to a hundred etc. Many things in our world are multiples of 10 so it's in our brains and we can comfortably work with it.guitarseller345645 wrote:Scot, what is the minimum number of strings necessary to achieve all the 'frequencies' that exist? Is it 10 - reason for 10 string guitars being so popular?
