The idea of creation four-string domra came to Gregory Lubimov in 1908 and master Segrey Burov tryied to create such interesting domra with GDAE tuning (like the mandolin or the violin).
Further both domra ensemble species and even orchestra of four-string domras appeared.
Now four-string domra is popular in Russia and broad, many concert and chamber compositions has written for it.
Four-string domra is a rare instrument in our music school. Until recently, the four-string domra could be ordered only at the private master or could be found in antique shop.
The last 2-3 years a growing interest has led to a revival of the instrument. Picking up old drawings and artists notes, we bring you the almost forgotten instrument. Beautiful, correct form, delicate violin head, carefully chosen materials – this is the basis of rich sounding our domra.
