Here is a breakdown of the cost for a study instrument :
Morin Huur (Study instrument for adult) - 350.000 tugrug (around 120€).
Rosin - 10.000 Tugrug (around 3€).
Mute (good at the begining, especially for your neighbourgh) - 5.000 Tugrug (around 1.25€).
Hard Case - 170.000 Tugrug (around 60€).
Wood box for shipping - 40.000 Tugrug (around 13€).
I also ask for an extra 50€ for my help.
The shipping cost usually is around 450.000 Tugrug (around 150€) but of course change depending on the area you are living.
The total would be then, for a study instrument, around 400€
nb: These prices are for a basic study instrument. Of course it's possible to aim for a more professional package depending on your budget and what you are looking for! We can talk about all that directly!

Ukiah, CA - UNITED STATES
Received his Morin Huur on May 10, 2018
“Steve was easy to contact and communicate with. He was willing to answer any and all questions.
When I received the shipped instrument it was in a sturdy wood box, and therefore had been kept safe after all those miles around the world, I also had the instrument itself shipped in a hard carrying case too. It plays great and I find a lot of satisfaction from playing it.
I will be contacting Steve again in the future for another one at some point, next time I want an igil!”

“When sharing with Steve about what I was looking for, it have always been in a warm hearten and open minded state of mind. His musical practice and his immersive life in Mongolian culture makes him the perfect person to help you to find an instrument that will fit your budget and expectations.
He really is a trustworthy guy, and I will for sure ask him again for my next order.”

Received his Morin Huur on February 17, 2020
“In 1997, I left Italy with a group of musician friends. We played in the squares of the largest cities of Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Russia on our way to Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar. There I was able to appreciate the extraordinary Mongolian culture and tradition. I decided then to purchase a morin huur.
This instrument that followed me until now became in very bad shape. I searched on internet how to get a new one and came across Steve Morel. I was struck by his choices and his way of proposing himself...
Today, I have at home a beautiful new morin huur tried, checked and perfectly set up directly by Steve, who took care of every details of the expedition.
I am very happy and I hope one day to be able to return to that wonderful land and to meet him. For the time being, I will follow his interesting online lessons. Thank you very much, Steve. Good life to you.”
