Great sounding Concert Grade Balalaika N1 by A.Tsygankov workshop!
Dear buyers! Here's your chance to purchase a great-sounding, super high-quality Russian modern concert grade balalaika prima N1 made by A.Tsygankov workshop. This balalaika was completed in May 2021 by our top luthiers' team and the level of this balalaika allows the player to perform both as a solo performer or an orchestra player.
The body is made of highly flamed maple, the neck is blackwood/eastern ebony (Makassar), the body top wood is Karelian spruce. The neck has a modern thinner profile and will be comfortable for both adults and children with very little effort required to keep the chords pressed. This balalaika also has a very special "heelless" design and because of that, you can reach high notes with ease. The fretwork and overall built quality are top-notch. It's as accurate as if was made by a CNC machine, but it's a 100% handmade instrument.
The sound of this instrument is loud, wide, open highs, warm low end, and other concert grade balalaika qualities. Consider this beautiful instrument as a 'once in a lifetime investment' and with a high probability you will not need any additional balalaikas after buying this one)
All instruments that we sell are inspected and played by maestro Alexander Tsygankov himself (my dad, who is People's Artist of the Russian Federation and a professor at Gnesin's Academy of Music).
