WTB Cittern, Buchanan or other
Hello all. I hope that you’re all OK in these interesting times. So, after a long time in lockdown conditions when frankly I haven’t had have much enthusiasm for playing, I’ve decided that I need to do more! Hence I thought I’d look for a new instrument.
I’m after a cittern which can be tuned in fifths - CGDAE or GDAEB.
I did have a Hathway cittern, which was a lovely instrument, but it was designed for modal tunings. I’m not really after that. A fitted pick-up would be a bonus, but not essential. I’d want it to be in good condition. I wouldn’t mind a few scratches and signs of wear, but it’d need to play in tune and be structurally sound.
(Yes, I’ve bought a couple of lemons in the past after being assured they were in good condition and played in tune, so I’d rather avoid that!)
I’d be particularly interested if there was a Buchanan cittern out there looking for a new home. However, I’d entertain other options.
Obviously, nowadays, it’d need to be sent by courier. I’m in South Wales.
