The Bowed Psaltery is an easy to play instrument, even if you don’t know anything about music. It is played by using a bow to play one string at a time. An easy to follow number system makes it possible to learn quickly. The included instruction book explains holding and bowing the psaltery as well as how to use the numbers and even how to read music if you want to learn. Everything you need to play is included with your Psaltery.Our Bowed Psalteries are hand made in our shop and constructed of Quality materials. When building our psalteries we use a hardwood frame with a hard maple pin block. Solid Walnut or Butternut tops provide excellent tone and volume. Our 30 and 24 string models include a solid wood rosette inlaid into the soundhole. All of our bowed psalteries include a bow, tuning wrench, rosin, extra strings, and instruction book.
Our 30 string model measures 21" by 7.5" and has more then 2 chromatic octaves with a range from F to A". The 24 string model measures 19" by 7" and has a 2 octave range from G to G".
