The hurdy-gurdy is a string instrument that produces a sound resembling one of a bagpipe by a hand-turned wheel rubbing against the strings working similarly to a violin and a fiddle bow. Ugears got to work and created the most amazing and ingenious replica of this cool instrument. Let us walk you through this intriguing product with a few FAQ's.
Q1. How is the Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy Mechanical Model Kit different from other puzzle sets?
The design of the Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy is based on the original prototype, therefore it includes the body, front and back decks, gears, crank (handle), wheel, neck, tuning pegs or hitch-pins, strings and a tangent box that altogether form a single beautiful instrument. This self-assembled mechanical musical model is super easy to play, creating sound as the hand-turned wheel rubs against the melody and bourdon strings.
Q2. What is the principle behind its working?
The Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy’s tuning pegs have a gear reduction mechanism for finer sound tuning of the melody and bourdon strings. For a more clear sound you can switch off the bourdon string using a little lever in the key box. 6 keys are spring-loaded with rubber bands and little cranks in the key box to ensure softer and more convenient play. Also, the Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy has a special mechanism to adjust the height of both strings (melody and bourdon string) on the bridge and the beautiful planetary gears mechanism inside the body. The length of the melody and the bourdon string is 250 mm (from the bridge to the nut). The length of the strings between the middle of the wheel to the bridge is 30 mm.
Q3. For which age group is the puzzle suited?
Since the puzzle has small parts, it is not suitable for children under 14 years of age. So basically anyone who is above the age of 14 and does not have the tendency to place inedible objects in their mouth can attempt to assemble this mechanical puzzle.
Q4. What is the time required for assembling the Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy Mechanical Model?
The estimated time of assembly is 4-5 hours.
Q5. What are the included number of components in the package and what all is needed to assemble the finished piece?
The number of components in the box is 292 pieces. The Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy Mechanical Model Kit is made of sustainably sourced high-grade wood and has everything you might need for assembly. The quality of the parts is top-notch: a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board that provides precise hairline cuts. The details have to be pulled out of the boards and assembled to create a complete model. The product comes with an instruction manual.
Q6. What are the dimensions of the finished product and those of the package itself?
The model size is 15.7*6.5*8.7 in (40*16.5*22 cm), and the package size is 14.9*6.7*2 in (37.8*17*5 cm).
Q7. Do we require glue or any other chemical for assembling the Ugears Hurdy-Gurdy Mechanical Model Kit?
