I am in fundraising mode to save up for a Masterworks dulcimer and as a result am selling some odds and ends. Two such instruments are Ukrainian banduras. One is a 1980s Chernihiv model with 55 strings total. It's in remarkable condition and has a warm glowing sound. Included is the original case, tuning wrench, and a set of new strings. $600

I also have a Prima model made by Trembita in 2017. This was custom ordered as it has the extended bass and a total of 65 strings. With this model there is a mechanism like on a pedal harp that allows you to change keys easily. This one includes a case with backpack straps, tuning wrench, and a set of strings. $2,000

Bandura is like an open-faced piano. The main strings are tuned in G major and you reach over to the adjacent row to grab accidentals. It is a completely chromatic instruments capable of some amazing music. I don't have a computer but do have photos I can email. I also can meet via Skype on my phone of you want to hear them.
