Default Hurdy Gurdy

Not sure this has been seen / discussed before but I was taken by this mechanical and acoustic instrument.

No glue. Compression parts:

That's fascinating. I need to look into how this actually works.

Carter Gravat, lead guitarist/multi-instrumentalist for the Virginia band Carbon Leaf had a custom hurdy-gurdy made that allows note/chord changes (the older ones were single chord/key) and has a pickup system. He uses it in their live show for one song, really fills out the instrumentation.
