Irish Bouzouki : What is it?

Irish Bouzoukis

The Irish bouzouki is a string instrument that belongs to the bouzouki family. It is made up of four strings, a semi-arched or flat back (resembling a Portuguese or an American mandolin), and a long fretboard. It produces a more distinct sound, which is an octave below the sound of a traditional mandolin. It is played by strumming or plucking the strings. It is available in short and long models between 22 and 26 inches long.

Choosing Irish Bouzoukis (Buying tips)

Skill level: If you are a beginner, choose an inexpensive one made by an unknown yet reputable manufacturer to practice on. You can get a Korean-made Irish bouzouki made of solid wood sold at a very affordable price. You can invest on a branded instrument once you get better at playing.

Neck width:
If you have slim hands, choose a narrow-necked Irish bouzouki. Get one with a fatter neck for easier playing and handling if you have big hands.
