This is not an indigenous Vulcan instrument.
This Ethiopian krar found it's way onto Gary's bench by itself. Okay that's not true at all. Actually it's on Gary's bench because the bridge pickup lead is too short. You see, in the course of play the bridge is moved back and forth across the frame-stretched skin. Gary added extra length to the cable that attaches to the pickup to facilitate the constant movement.
