Maybe it’s a floating bridge and can be positioned further away from the sound hole?
I don’t see any tort.
If it's fretted and intonated where it is, moving the bridge is just going to throw off the intonation.
You've got a bassoguitar, don't you? Try this: plonk the open strings with the bridge in its standard place. Then move the bridge up as far as you can toward the soundhole. My hunch is that with all that additional afterlength, the instrument will sound "bassier."
wouldn't that be tortski in this case товарищ?
No , don’t. I think @mikeoso might?
I only mentioned about the floating bridge as the other basses in the vids submitted in this thread all show the bridge further away from the sound hole.
It looks like there's some variation in neck length between the photos though, the first joins the body at fret 13 but others look longer... the one Turid is playing looks like it joins at fret 15.
For contrabass balalaika Katzenjammer rules!
And for everything else
They might not all be the same?
Balalaika - Wikipedia
Here's mine... used to be a 6-string mandolin balalaika but I decided 8 was better as then it could become a mandola. Anyone with luthiery experience would probably have asked themselves if a neck without a truss rod would take a mandola steel string set and of course it won't, so it's a weird hybrid of light gauge octave and unison pairs.
Agree. I really enjoy that band.
I was just going to post that very interview from Fly Guitars
Would totally dig one but I'm a banjo player now.
Too funny. I'm not very cultured and just yesterday I snapped this picture for ID purposes & discovered these instruments and more.
This excites me.
