Subject: RE: Help Me Identify This Instrument
Max, regardless of the price and if you ever buy it or learn to play it, this has been a good discussion. And the links posted are very interesting. These zithers are works of art in addition to being musical instruments. I wouldn't mind having one on my wall and/or in my music room. I poked around a little at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in their musical instrument collection, but their only zither is from Korea.
The Ebay results did show a mix of values--one that went for higher than the price you found, one for much lower. It's a judgement call--contrary to Thomas's reaction, I've always loved the score to The Third Man.
