Kantele player Peter Widenmeyer from Germany has written a great five string kantele playing guide which can be downloaded for personal use.
Visit his website www.finnischekantele.de and also his You tube channel with over 20 kantele songs to learn!
For 10 to 19 string kantele players, we recommend the following book by Arja Kastinen and Pirjo Pirinen: In Visible Vibration - A Guidebook for the 11-string kantele (in English). Instructions for tuning and diverse playing techniques with the help of colour images. contains both traditional tunes from Finland and other European countries for kantele.
For a small eaxtra cost, our kanteles can be coloured either dark oak with a traditional wood stain or more vibrant colours such as red, pink, blue etc. Take a look below:
