Davy Stuart Instruments

Postby Collins » Mon May 22, 2006 9:51 pm

I am privileged to own two Davy Stuart (New Zealand) instruments; both citterns (10 stringers). The larger has a 14" mahogany body, spruce soundboard and a 21" scale and is a standard instrument in his catalog (OB 10). The other is a custom instrument, nearly identical to the previously mentioned instrument but with a 16" scale. I had this made after seeing Andy Irvine playing his 8 string "Andylin", also made by Davy. Extremely well built, gorgeous in their simplicity and plenty loud. Davy has proven a pleasure to work with over the past couple of years. I wholeheartedly recommend his work.
