Gear-a-holic part 8

It has been quiet lately but that´s ok by me. At least one new track in Vote with a brick -series will be uploaded in a near future.
I was visiting Lapland lately and while going through old and new garbage at a local flea market I found this junk treasure:It is an old (supposely made in 60´s) 32-string kantele. Normally I would pay very little attention to such thing but this one was a robust, broken piece which resonates nicely and was way out of tune. I instantly fell in love with the 'broken sound' of it (and the low price of 40 euros). It needs a little repair and a few extra strings but after that it will be nice little noise maker (it is quite large actually). Lovely!
UPDATE: You can hear results here
