Thread Name: Irish bouzouki
Subject: RE: Irish bouzouki
I've just bought an "Irish" bouzouki from Eagle Music. It is by Ozark, pretty plain but seems well built and finished. It came with a soft case, spare strings, a CD and an electronic tuner for £152 inc. UK postage. In gdae tuning it's great for melodies, although after the tenor and mandoline I'm still having difficulties with the slightly longer stretch required.
I don't know how much postage would be to the US (I notice you all talk in $), but a word with Steve Noon at Eagle would be worth while.
Good luck, whatever you buy, Davy.
