Presenting the instruments Eldrim use in our music.
“Gnaal” is a bowed lyre (taglharpe) made of spruce, flame ash and bog oak.
Strings are made of horse tail.
Not a reproduction. More a bastard with various historical instruments as it’s “parents”.
We felt the need for a deeper tone/drone and came up with this creation.
Tuning: D (same as the D on a normal bass guitar)- A – D (octave higher)
Made by Espen Winther (Eldrim)
Here you can see the whole process. From drawing to sound:
