Vintage 3 string Russian DOMRA folk instrument made by "Shikhovo" luthier
Up for sale vintage, nice sounding three-string Domra instrument with flame maple back.
The instrument was made in 1992 by Uchastnov luthier (Shikhovo/VHO/Tchaikovsky factory luthier) and is in good condition despite its old age! It has quite a bit of finish wear but there are no wooden or construction issues and 100% ready to play!
The luthier who made this instrument was a member of "Shikhovo" luthiers team back at the time of this domra production.
There were no "grades" back then, but I guess it's student or 1st grade instrument with flamed maple back - it's a basic, but good quality build.
We set the price really low on this one - for this price you can only get a modern mass produced domra made of low quality woods or even laminate body. But instead - you're getting an instrument made by Shikhovo luthier that can bring you years of joy playing it.
As mentioned above - the instrument is 100% ready to play, has low action strings, and does not demand any investments.
If you just learning to play Russian domra - this instrument might be a good choice for you!
This instrument was also checked 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). It's needed to say that my father's main domra he plays on stage for many years is also made by A.I. Makeev!
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 was dealing with the production of boutique custom electric guitars for all of my life. So you get that double control on our side.
