This is our standard 2 1/2 octave bowed psaltery with a Cherry top (or soundboard).  The Tuning is set up with the whole notes on the Left and the sharps and flats on the right side.  Typically this would be preferred by a Left Handed Player!  The frame is made of Northern Rock Maple and the back is usually solid Mahogany, although we sometimes make them with Cherry, Walnut or Maple.  Every one of our bowed psalteries is handcrafted here at Song of the Wood and is signed and numbered.  In addition, every psaltery comes with an adjustable horsehair bow, rosin, a tuning wrench, a tuning chart, an instruction and care booklet and some spare wire.  We inlay dots in every G, C, C# and F# playing position to help you find your way around.  Can be purchased with or without a case.
