I recently got hold of a Balalaika made in Leningrad 1970ish. Balalaika are tuned EEA. It took me 20 minutes to put an extra friction peg in the head. take a wire string to that peg and string the the original tuners with tenor Worth strings. I obviously had to cut two extra notces in the nut and bridge which also had to be moved back to a 17" scale. The result...GCEA Awesome. I'm gigging with it next Friday.:cool:
