Final Reduction on our last few remaining kits due to some parts missing and slightly imperfect parts.
(please read details below as some parts are missing and are slightly imperfect)
Our last few remaining kits are of slight second quality and missing a number of parts including the soundboard, wrest plank capping, hitch rail/mouldings, which you would need to make yourself from the drawings supplied. Please note, some of the kit parts supplied maybe slightly imperfect or of second quality or warped and may require adjustment or remaking. These last few kits are completely flat packed, but we also have kits with partly assembled caseworks which may require some adjustment to the remaining kit parts supplied. Other parts missing are the complete set of strings, jack spring wire and axle wire and the jack plectra. However, these are available to purchase from The Early Music Shop separately now, or at a later date. If you have a preference for an assembled casework, please let us know, otherwise, we will send the flat packed kit unless these run out.
For further information, please ask for details.
