The 12 string cembalo guitar was developed for its good reverberations. The noble and gorgeous sound is very unique. It is still made to order, but it's very popular and new orders come one after another. It has a beautiful Rosetta and gives the audience a noble feeling. As with the single alto cembalo guitar, it is tuned a 5th higher than the prime guitar. The player attaches needles to the right-hand fingers and creates the sound of a cembalo. By playing with fingernails like other guitars, a gentle and sweet sound can also be made. The sound is essential for baroque music. By changing the thickness of the strings and the position of play, even the sound of the mandolin and the zither can be created.
