Franz Schwarzer

What? Not the Missouri maker of fine concert zithers? I was pretty startled, myself, to see this spectacular instrument appear on eBay a few years back. It has 6 chords of 4 notes each, and a fully chromatic melody section of 25 strings.

Thank goodness they didn't put on a note label... I'd love to know when this instrument was built, to compare it to the time of Menzenhauer's work.


Drop me a line.
