    Mooie schelpen maar niet correct geleverd. U heeft het laten leveren in een krantenwinkel verder van mijn thuis en niet bij mijn thuis zelf zoals opgegeven bij mijn aankoop.

    I have received this Malagasy instrument on 13-2-19 in a good shape, thanks the way it was very well packed. It's a pity that 5 string bridges (for every of the 18 strings: 2 bridges!) are missing...
