Heinrich Stadlmair Bayern Concert Zither Restoration Work Project Functional
This concert zither is in amazing condition for it's age. It does have some binding issues and it needs some love, a bit of binding, glue, and a clamp as well. Some pieces of the binding are missing and the top has sunken. It has only 1 harline crack on the back which is amazing compared to the several others I have seen online. There is also a bit of separation around the oval sound hole. The instrument is playable in it's current condition but it could use a fresh set of strings. Very restorable if put into the right hands. A concert zither may have from 29 to 38 strings, with 34 or 35 being most typical. These are arranged as follows: four or five fretted melody strings, placed above a guitar-like fretboard; 12 unfretted "accompaniment" strings; followed by 12 unfretted "bass" strings; followed by a varying number of "contrabass" strings, with five or six being the most common number. IN BUSINESS for 34 YEARS!! Brick and mortar to the end!
