For your consideration is a vintage Fischer's Liebling's Klange Mandolinette chromatic mandolin/guitar/piano zither. This vintage chromatic zither was made in the early 1900s and features an action that combines the nicest features of the Marxophone and Guitarophone. It is about twice the size of a normal chord zither. It features wooden hammers attached to tempered spring steel, with buttons as the actuators of the hammer action. This vintage Fischer Fidola Mandolette zither was made in the early 1900s and features an action that incorporates the best features of the Marxophone and Guitarophone. With a hand-painted stylized decoration and a beautiful semi-gloss black finish, this instrument's appearance is almost as beautiful as its sound. It is very difficult to find one of these, let alone any chromatic mandolin/piano zither. We have only seen one other Fischer's Liebling's Klange Mandolinette come up for sale over the many years that we have been buying and selling vintage instruments. This zither is in excellent cosmetic and functional condition, and works and sounds great.
