Hurdy-Gurdy – the world's first mechanical musical model that you put together yourself. It is the most extraordinary mechanical model kit which is all-in-one: model for self-assembly, toy and fully fledged musical instrument.

The Hurdy-Gurdy plays dancing melodies, from folk to modern, being the bridge between the medieval times and the present day. A unique blend of the joy of creation, playing music, and engineering and design. Just build it together with your own hands and feel like Stradivari or a popular Hurdy-Gurdy star!

With a total number of components of 292 and an estimated time of assembly of 4-5 hours for beginners or quicker for experienced Ugears builders you'll love the end result of this cool kit.

Assembling Hurdy-Gurdy

The Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy comes with everything you need for assembly.

All the pieces have been precut into the plywood boards and are easily removed for assembly following the detailed instructions provided. 

The only non-wood parts, by necessity, are the two strings that rub against the crank powered wheel and the rosin used to wax it.

Estimated assembly time of the Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy is 4-5 hours for beginners and less time for professional builders. Assembles without glue or special tools and without toothpicks.

Tuning Hurdy-Gurdy

The model has a melody string for playing melodies and a bourdon string for a background sound. 6 keys correspond to 6 notes that are played by pushing the key while rotating the crank.

The released keys provide one more, seventh, note. The second (bourdon) string is tuned by tuning the peg in unison to the melody string or in any melodic interval (quart, quint, octave).

The construction kit includes pieces of rosin to wax the wheel and improve the sound.

Playing Hurdy-Gurdy

The Hardy-Gurdy by Ugears is a fully-fledged musical instrument.

To start the music flowing, the player just need to crank the handle with one hand to kick off a drone sound from the bourdon and melody strings.

Pushing the wooden buttons with the fingers of the other hand changes the pitch of the melody string, as "spring-loaded" wooden blocks essentially shorten the string.

The Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy brings the unforgettable time of working together on things that are popular among people of any age. Just put it together and you are ready to throw an original party giving a new spur to whatever music you like – whether it is folk or modern – playing your new unique Hurdy-Gurdy solo, duet, trio or quartet.
