Just in! Great sounding first grade BALALAIKA SEKUNDA folk instrument
Just in! Up for sale - a vintage, great-sounding highest/first-grade balalaika SEKUNDA with oversized flamed maple body, cherry neck and rosewood.
This beautiful balalaika was built by Shannenkov luthier back in 1993, sounds super warm and bassy, and can strengthen lower frequencies in your orchestra or ensemble. This instrument comes all in the original paint without any modifications or restorations. The frets are in great shape (like 80-85%) and will serve you for many years more.
This balalaika can be your workhorse for the years ahead, this instrument requires no investments and 100% ready to play on stage.
The Sekundas can be tuned as "higher pitch" of Balalaika Altos tuning and it's being played with a caprolactone pick that comes with an auction + I'm giving away a Balalaika Sekunda spare set of strings.
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 it on Ebay 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.
Send me a message if you have any questions about this beautiful Balalaika. The soft case is included in the auction.
