modern Hurdy Gurdies

Welcome to my workshop for modern hurdy-gurdy making.

At current I work on three different projekts:


Dwarf is a rather small and sweetsounding hurdy-gurdy (Drehleier, vielle a roue).

Dwarf is for beginners and advanced players alike

who appreciate a simple and clear instrument as well as an open sound.


Giant Dwarf is the bigger version of Dwarf and appreciates the lower frequencies. It can be customized with up to 3 melodic strings, 3 drones and 2 trompettes.


Shakti is a modern-classical designed hurdy-gurdy. Shakti is buildt with up to 4 melodic strings, 3 trompettes and 3 drones. An extraordinary soundexperience.
