Atlas of Plucked Instruments: an encyclopedia of all the world's plucked instruments of lute, guitar, banjo and mandolin type

Atlas of Plucked Instruments: an encyclopedia of all the world's plucked instruments of lute, guitar, banjo and mandolin type
"Based on a large private collection of plucked stringed musical instruments (plus additional material from books and websites), this ATLAS will give you information about almost all the different plucked instruments you can think of."

I have tried to keep the website as simple as possible.

The menu with all different website pages is on the top left side, and repeated on each page.

This menu is roughly divided in 3 parts :
- the red part are the general pages,
- the grey part contains the pages with "historical" instruments,
- the green part contains the pages with "ethnic" instruments.

In the grey pages are the modern western style instruments, divided in their obvious different categories. The ethnic pages are divided into general regions, but in such a way that closely related types of instruments are as much as possible on one page. At the top of each region page you can see which countries are included, and usually also on which other page you can find a neighbouring country.

On the Index page is an overview of the contents and all the instruments on the different pages (but without the pictures), which could work easier/quicker if you are just searching for a name. You can search this page with the search button of your browser to find a particular instrument.

Includes an extensive bibliography.
