Hurdy Gurdy

Hurdy Gurdy

The hurdy-gurdy or viella a roue (wheeled violin) is a stringed instrument where the strings are vibrated by means of a wheel coated in rosin which is turned using a handle. The melody strings are stopped by pressing keys which are attached to pegs whilst unstopped drone strings provide continuous single notes. It is often found in medieval art and these days is a popular folk instrument throughout Europe particularly France where it is sometimes played alongside bagpipes.

We print with a 12 colour process, this means we can print a much larger colour range than most printing companies that normally use a 4 or 8 colour process.

6mm foam backed - printable are appx 24cm X 19cm. We need appx 3mm bleed for these.
