Old Russian 3-string soprano domra
This is an old domra, probably built in Russia. It is in good condition after restoration. There is a label, unfortunately its all in cyrillic…
This instrument is now fully playable. The top is sound afterrepairs. It has a solid 9-piece bowl back no repairs. It has the original fingerboard and frets. The tuners are original. The top has been refinished. It has been restrung traditionally as a mezzo-soprano domra, BEA with string gauges .022w .016 .012. It is playing well with a light, bright sound. It has an easy action.
Other than cleaning,I have repaired as follows… 1) repaired several splits in the top; 2) renewed damaged edging; 3) refinished throughout; 4) refitted and/or replaced rosewood scratch-plates; 5) levelled and dressed frets; and 6) fitted new bone tail protector, and ebony and bone bridge.
