    My first nyckelharpa is still my favourite for chromatic playing in various keys !

It was built and finished in 1979 by myself and my father Sven Carlsson.
I´m usually playing this nyckelharpa with a "Fiddla Bow" that I bought instead of doing my own. This bow has then played an important part in developing my own playing style, and now I can´t play this nyckelharpa with another sort of bow...

The tuning is standard   a1-c1-g-c   but I also use a small piece of wood for fast turning the "big bass c" up to d - when playing in G or D modus.



As a good and playable instrument my first nyckelharpa is well used and has got some charming flaws...
