We offer Çiftelia, Sharkia and Lahuta for sale ...

The Çiftelia (Chiftelia) is an Albanian wooden, largely acoustic string instrument, with only two strings. The Çiftelia is played by Albanians at
weddings, concerts and other occasions, its beautiful sound makes the music live. The size and scale length of various Çiftelias may differ
from one another. The Çiftelia is often tuned to that of the same pitch as the two highest strings on the guitar, strings E and B. Usually the
lower string is played as a drone, with the melody played on the higher string. The Çiftelia is a fretted instrument, but unlike most it does not
have one fret per semitone, but rather one fret per note in a seven note diatonic scale. Seven frets up is the octave of the open string.
We currently sell the following musical instruments:

  • Çiftelia
