Hurdy Gurdy

Amaze your friends with the mechanical operation of the Hurdy Gurdy.

Like the sound of a bagpipe? Buy a hurdy gurdy and you can get the same sound without using up all your breath. Just turn the crank to activate the rosin-coated wheel which vibrates the strings. Then push the keys with your other hand to play melodies. It's a fascinating invention with a rich history from sixteenth century Europe.
