The double-sided concert monochord MO-46GK (KOTAMO) contains 3 instruments in one:

  • The monochrome monochord with 28 overtone strings and 2 bass strings
  • The earthy tambura with 4 strings in C,c, c, G, which produces soft and long-lasting, Indian-style buzzing sounds
  • The melodious koto with 12 koto strings, which are individually subordinated with riders


The exotic challenge for all guitarists, harpists and string virtuosos - the multi-stringed koto.

The koto with the riders dominates with its harp-like sound, which is occasionally supplemented by draw notes. The monochord underscores with its fine waves, the tambura complements the sound with its exotic, unmistakably Indian buzzing tones. The MO-46GK is played lying down. It can be placed upright for storage. In this position, the instrument is also very space-saving and a beauty in the living room.

The tabs can be plucked individually or bowed like a harp. Like a koto, the tabs can also be pressed down on the untuned side after plucking, so that the tone increases its frequency or creates a vibrato. The tuning template specifies a diatonic scale over 1.5 octaves, but the tabs can also be moved at will by the professional, even while playing, and tuned to a variety of other pitches. The tabs are arranged in the same way as kotos are traditionally played to enable the technique of drawing notes. Here the highest to n is on the player's body. In Europe, the inverted construction method is usually used by instrument makers, as it serves the guitar player 's playing technique and does not require any rethinking. Our construction method is based on the traditional playing technique of the guzheng.
