I have no idea.
Never seen one before.
I saw one used while watching Led Zeppelin's "Gallows Pole" video....Been bugging me ever since.
About 2:00 min. into the vid.
Seems logical...but them tribbles are a pain in the ass.
It does indeed, but Patty Gurdy and hurdy gurdy got me confused...After all, confusion is my middle name. : )
Thanks for your answer, WildOne.
The hurdy gurdy is a crank string instrument dating back to Medieval times. It's a great sound and seems to be making a comeback.
I'm wondering if one could make an electric hurdy-gurdy. What would the sound be like?
It looks like a complicated build.
