Fellas, does this man's talent get dismissed because he is playing  a 4 stringer?  I think not.  I also prefer a 3 stringer but when there is talent there is talent.  When a man's playing makes your skin rise up does it matter if he is playing a 3 or 4 or even 5 stringer? 

Does it matter what key clarinet someone is playing when his playing is marvelous?  I think the same holds true with bouzoukia.  Talent is talent.

Respectfully,   

Firstly, I agree 100% with the sentiments you expressed!!

But secondly, in fairness to Bass and Kalakos's comments, they are correct. Even though his bouzouki has tuners for four pairs of strings, he has it strung with only three courses.

This is actually pretty common among players of minority tunings. It's pretty easy to replace the nut and saddle with new ones slotted for a different stringing pattern - and often players don't even bother to do that; they just cut new slots where they need them. But it's much harder to acquire a quality non-standard instrument, even when it was standard until relatively recently.

George, I don't think anyone disregarded the man's talent, the opposite, on top of his talent i simply bragged about his three stringer sound.  Nothing wrong with 4 stringer, i own one and love it.  To me it's kind of like boehm and albert, both can sound great played by a master, but you can still tell the difference in tone.

Actually most three string bouzoukia even from Zozef's time use 8 tuning keys. In some cases the bass D string used one wound and two unwound. But usually two tuning machines were left empty. I believe that the makers did this because the 4 in a row mandolin tuning machines are lighter. Also if you break a peg you have a couple of extras. I have two antique bouzoukia, my first one made in 1910. They both have 6 tuning machines (2 bars with three keys each).  My new Spourdalakis bouzouki has 6 tuning keys.
So the number of tuning keys is not indicative necessarily of a four string bouzouki. The four string bouzouki has a wider neck and larger body and face dimensions.

I include a photo of my first bouzouki.

Not me, that was the first thing I noticed, the special ringing sound. One of the reasons why I enjoyed this clip so much.
