This 2 1/2 Octave Bowed Psaltery is made with one of my favorite woods ... Bolivian Rosewood. The top is "bookmatched" to accentuate the grain pattern which is quite beautiful as you can see. This one has a Cherry back and rails and Northern Rock Maple pinblock. It features Purpleheart edge binding, bridge and outer Rosette with a East Indian Rosewood inner Rosette to compliment the top. This instrument ranges from middle C up to A (two and a half octaves above middle C). It comes with an adjustable horsehair bow, tuning wrench, rosin, tuning chart, extra strings and an instruction and care booklet.

Song of the Wood says:
I think Rosewood is my very favorite wood of the "exotics" ... along with Maple being my favorite domestic wood. This Rosewood comes from Bolivia. It has that "oh so distinctive" smell when you cut or sand it (a little like roses)!
