'Melodia Soitin' kantele workshop was founded in 2010 by instrument maker Anthony Thompson.
Thompson has a diploma in classical guitar making from Newark school of instrument making, England and began building kanteles in 2001, before moving to Finland with his family in 2008.
Our kantele workshop in Saarijärvi produces over 500 kanteles per year for sale in both Finland and to countries as far away as Japan, USA, Brazil etc. All our instruments are individually built by hand from solid alderwood, using a minimum of machine tools.
As well as selling to private customers we also offer discounts to music teachers, schools and shops.
All 5 string kanteles are available immediately from stock, other instruments normally have a waiting time of
one or two weeks.
You can make payment by Paypal, by clicking on the 'Add to cart' links for each kantele, or if you prefer to pay by bank transfer, contact us and we will give you the neccesary transfer details
