    Default Filipino banduria.

    My son and his wife brought me back this Filipino banduria from the Philippines. It has 14 strings arranged in six courses and to reduce my learning curve, I have it tuned E-AA-DD-GGG-BBB-EEE.

    Any chance of a sound sample? I'd sure hate to have to tune that beast.

    Just out of curiosity, what's the scale length? And how is it traditionally tuned?

    Wow, that is certainly unique. Very cool. I cannot imagine fretting that (or tuning it)

    He can't imagine tuning it, either. It answers Jim's questions about scale and what notes it is (almost) tuned to.
