Charango Strings

Charango Strings

Traditionally, the back of a charango was constructed with a dried armadillo shell, a practice that persists today. The rest of the Andean instrument was wood, and today many charangos are made entirely of wood.

There are almost as many variations among charangos as there are charangos. Typically, the instrument has 10 strings in five courses.
