English: Kontra
 ·  ·

Kontra (In Hungarian: Háromhúros brácsa) is a Romanian, Hungarian and Slovak instrument common in Transylvania.

It is constructed much like the classical viola, with two major differences.

  • First, there are only three strings instead of four (tuned like a viola without low C string: G-D-A).
  • Second, the bridge is flattened, allowing a musician to play all three strings at once.
