For many years we have also been offering our models as 7- or 8-stringed variants in our custom shop. However, this was very time-consuming to implement in the workshop and correspondingly expensive.
In order to offer musicians the opportunity to play multi-stringed concert guitars with a good price/performance ratio, we have expanded our standard assortment with two 7-stringed models and two 8-stringed models. To meet the different demands of the guitarists, these are coming in the recital line, Hanika 7-Pro and Hanika 8-Pro, and in the professional line, Hanika 7-Meister and Hanika 8-Meister.
By default, the 7-stringed models are tuned - contra B, E, A, D, g, b, e' - and the 8-string models - contra A, C, E, A, D, g, b, e' ´. The spacing on all four instruments is slightly reduced for comfortable playability.
At the moment you can play all four new Hanika multistringed models by prior appointment directly here in Baiersdorf and at "Siccas Guitars" in Karlsruhe. You can also test the Hanika 7-Pro and 8-Pro from the recital line at “Musikbrunnen Böhmeke” in Hannover. In addition, your trusted music shop can also order these models on approval.
