Beginner balalaika with small concept errors

Christoph496, 03.04.2014
First of all, this balalaika is a good instrument, which is worth its money quite well. The missing star is explained as follows: The authentically designed front is uniformly painted, but the traditional paint is decals on the paint surface. Much more annoying, however, is the ugly plastic dashboard that creeps up on every stop, the cover of the vocal vertebra is made of the same material. The dashboard should be fed with something. I'll probably try to lose weight. The back and the neck, however, are a visual feast and the latter is great in the hand. The sound is better than expected and compensated for the somewhat failed look on the front.
It's a pity that she is a bit ugly at the front, otherwise you get a good classical Prim balalaika.

Russian Balalaika of Romanian Hora manufacture.
Beautiful instrument, no particular defects of finish or construction.
The handle is nice, but the gameplay is somewhat limited by the size of the frets: they are very flat, which is quite disturbing.
The sound is quite dry, the instrument has little chest and a limited resonance.
This is really an instrument of study and I regret that Thomann does not offer a mid-range instrument, more expensive but better sound quality.
