Mechanical model manufacturer UGears has taken to Kickstarter to launch an innovative new hurdy gurdy musical model kit that is designed to make it possible for musicians with an eye for design to create and assemble their very own hand-cranked instruments.

What's great about this hurdy gurdy kit is that it allows users to craft a musical instrument that they don't necessarily have to be a maestro to enjoy, although there's no question that the resulting stringed instrument sounds truly spectacular in expert hands. What's more, the finished instrument looks remarkably akin to the original 16th century hurdy gurdy, giving it a wonderfully medieval aesthetic.

This hurdy kit is an excellent product for anyone looking to enjoy the rarefied experience of creating a musical instrument from scratch, and using it to produce exotic sounds.
