Balalaiker® Sputnik-T russian prim balalaika

A traditional Balalaika with an improved finish. A popular model of a traditional balalaika with a medium and a five-part body. It is popular with lovers of an authentic style of play. A similar type of balalaika was widespread in pre-revolutionary Russia and in Soviet times. The characteristics of the instrument consist of the medium-sized body, bright open sound and laconic decor. Balalaiker Sputnik-T is balanced in its acoustic characteristics.
