Up for sale is an incredible-sounding CONCERT grade four-string Domra ALTO instrument with a deep-flamed maple back. It's handmade by one of the best Tchaikovsky luthiery domra builders, Zubchencko.
This instrument is new old stock, was made by Zubchenko in 2015 for the All-Russian luthier contest, and was kept as luthier's reserve since then. The Domra made of the best, exhibition-grade wood - naturally dried flamed maple, resonant spruce; the neck is made using a rosewood with an ebony fretboard.
The condition of the instrument is just like new, the only cosmetic flaw is a tiny (5mm) hair-thin scratch on the rosette flower part. Otherwise - the finish is perfect.
The sound of this instrument is amazing - it's deep, wide, warm, full of rich overtones, and great low-end frequencies. The built quality is impeccable, super-accurate as all concert-grade Zubchenko domras.
A padded soft case (semi-hard) is included in an auction. An instrument like this will cost you way more than 2K$ if ordered from the Tchaikovsky factory these days and they are currently back-ordered until 2023.

All instruments that we sell are inspected 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). My dad is always auditioning our instruments prior to we put them on our website and I'm very picky when it comes to construction quality as I'm dealing with the production of high-end boutique custom electric guitars for all of my life.
