Similar pickups are widely used by several Greek artists today and come in active and passive versions.
The way they are made will provide them the ability to produce particular sounds, so you need to make sure that the instrument you will purchase will raise to your expectancies.
Since those pioneering days, the bouzouki has established a secure place in Irish music and has been adopted by many players outside that field.
This is why we consider it an option worth of exploring.
However, if you are an amateur looking for a cheap, quality and efficient bouzouki to start your practice and hone your skills, this model will do just fine.
It is tuned the same as the trichordo bouzouki but pitched an octave higher nominally D—A—D , with unison pairs on the four highest strings and an octave pair on the lower D.
Irish bouzoukis typically feature a shorter scale length of approximately 24 frets.
This way, you will be able to take your precious bouzouki everywhere, without the risks of subjecting it to any damages.
