Beautiful old Prim in great condition.
Best explained from a web description:
Bisernica (prim, "the little pearl"):
The bisernica is the smallest instrument in a tamburica-orchestra - as the name says - the "little pearl" among the croatian national instruments. Typical playing-technique is "trzanje".
This technique makes the characteristic, soft sound, which is similar to that of other instruments like the mandolina or the balalaika. The bisernica mostly plays the first or highest voice or other "ornaments" (like transitions,...) of a musical piece. Very high, fine sound.
