I offer two different versions of this instrument,  one, a copy based on the Instrument in the Reykavik Folk Museum, a 3 string instrument with the diatonic fingerboard. slim and one side bent. 

Bentside Langspil, Museum replica, custom version;


Chromatic Langspil

My second one is a deeper body model with a wider soundboard,  closer to a Langeleik in dimensions.     

This New Langspil version has been undergoing a revival thanks to people like Diddi fiðla and recently Chris Foster and Bára Grímsdóttir who are playing the type on this page as a working model.

Drawings are now available to purchase and download of this Chromatic version of the instrument here
