Dvina sounds really really good. And with just two strings to tune, it is quite fun and appealing to try out different tunings. I have to say the variable design is genius. Being able to shift the bottom part into a different position in mere seconds really makes this a user-friendly and comfortable instrument to play. The Dvina is inviting to play and to experiment with, plucking on the strings for meditative pieces, and for creating etherial sounds with a bow and effects pedals. A handheld string exciter like the Paul Vo Wond also creates interesting results.
