Restoring of a Concert Zither
A disused Cither is too often laid away with tuned strings in a moist room. As the clue
used is not waterproof, the instrument collapses. A repair must hen be done, and so it was.
Ater dismounting the strings, the anchorblock was removed. A loose cross brace was spottet inside the
Zither. With a sandpaper file the old clue was removed from both cross brace and anchorblock.
The cross brace was clued, and while the clue hardened held in place with a wedge.
Then the anchorblock was mounted back and held in place with clamps. Some lacquer repair and the Zither
was again worth a sight and a listen.
