"Receptive, responsible, kind, ready to help with the selection, if you are choosing a gift for someone. Immediacy and friendliness are certainly two qualities that set them apart from everyone else, and for that reason they were also the reason for their selection. Very high quality, great sounding gusle, and I will certainly return to them again and wholeheartedly recommend them to everyone! 5* and big BRAVO! [Note: google translate]"

"The first thing that comes to mind is how very flexible everyone has been with shipping. The gusle was supposed to arrive in Prague in 12 days for my husband's birthday. In order for them to succeed, even their uncle, who happened to be visiting them, helped. If it weren't for him, the surprise wouldn't have worked this year for sure. When we finally opened them for the birthday, I was speechless. I bought them through the website, I have never been in their store or ever held a violin in my hands. They are so perfectly made, such a sound comes out of them that we and all our friends here who had the opportunity to see them, were very pleasantly surprised. I bought a gusle quite by accident, which can not only be used as an instrument, but also a beautiful decoration in our living room. I am quite sure that they will be passed on to the next generations with joy and as a great honor. Thank you for that. [Note: google translate]"

About Gusle

Gusle with an Eagle

Gusle are traditional musical instrument used in Balkan countries, especially in Montenegro, Serbia, Dalmatia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is a wooden instrument, typically made of maple wood, with a single string played using a bow.

The bow is used to draw across the tightened strings, producing a sharp and dramatic sound, which is highly expressive. Gusle belong to instruments that require great skill to play.

Gusle are traditionally used to perform epic songs that narrate historical events, heroes, and legends. Gusle contribute to preserving the memory of heroes and events from the past, thus contributing to the preservation of Balkan cultural heritage.

Gusle consist of a soundbox, head, neck, strings, pegs, bridge, horsehair, and a bow used for playing.
