Components for the brass capsules are made nearby from our own dies, then riveted in our shop. Tuning pins are made to our specifications, and ground with a square head to fit the tuning wrenches used for zither pins. Casters are made to our patterns using the traditional lost wax method of casting. Two leg designs are offered: (1) three columnar legs, the front two
are joined by a stretcher that also supports the pedals and decorative lyre, or (2) three tapered turned legs, separate from the pedals and the lyre that supports them.
