About Melodia Soitin
Melodia soitin was founded in 2010 by instrument maker Anthony Thompson, with the aim of providing fine quality kanteles to customers in Finland and worldwide, at a reasonable price.
We produce approximately 300 instruments per year from our workshop in the countryside outside Saarijärvi, using only the best hand selected alder wood. All kanteles are built using minimum machining tools & all planing, kantele construction & finishing is done by hand.
The instruments are then finished with an optional stain, linseed oil and pinned/strung up using top quality German made pins & strings.
As well as selling to private customers we also offer discounts to music teachers, schools & shops.
We also produce custom instruments from customers ideas & wishes.
Melodia Soitin kanteles can now be found in homes & schools all over the world in countries such as Japan, Australia, Brazil & the USA.
Five & eleven string kanteles are available immediately from stock, other instruments normally have a waiting time of one or two weeks.
