Sweet Sounds

Draw forth the sweet sounds of the ages with this lovely psaltery. Featuring a triangular shape and warm tone relatively unchanged from ancient times, this elegant instrument is easy to bow, making it ideal for budding virtuosos. Diatonic and pentatonic scales are laid out on opposite sides, making music simple to grasp, yet satisfying to manipulate and deconstruct. This beautiful psaltery is crafted from maple wood. Tuning key, rosin, and song booklet included. Handmade in Rochester, New York.

      Comments about CHERRY BOWED PSALTERY:

      I treated myself to this instrument and I am very happy with it. I am not a skilled psaltery player but I do sing and play some other instruments and I look forward to adding this unique ancient instrument to my collection.
