15 String KantelesI make three different 15 string Kantele variations
The 11 string and 4 drones model/ £950
4 drone strings tuned either Dd aa or A a aa with 11 strings tuned A B C# D E F# G A B C# d This instrument has the same basic tuning as the 11 string but with 4 drone strings that enriches the sound with a warm harmonic rich bagpipe-like sound.
better for solo playing and meditation than ensemble, See my 11 string Kantele for more info and tutor or playing.
Black Walnut model £950 more options available £ POA
The 15 strings diatonic version D-d D through to D also £950
Folk-Concert model: 15 string D-d with 6 sharpening levers, folk Concert model also has a K&K pickup.
This instrument has the flexibility to change key easily. £1250
These are larger Kanteles in every way.
