Citterns

Citterns

The Cittern used by today's folk-bands has its ancestors in the renaissance Citterns and the English Guitar, but it is now more closely related to the flat-back Bouzouki - the main difference being that the Cittern has 10 strings in 5 courses, a slightly shorter neck and often a rather larger body. There doesn't seem to be a standard tuning, ADADA, ADGAD, or DGDAD, are in common use. For more information about any of our products, please call us on 0333 800 9500 or email post@hobgoblin.co.uk. We stock most of these products in all of our UK shops, but if there's something in particular you'd like to see please contact your nearest branch before travelling.
