This 2 1/2 Octave Bowed Psaltery is Jatoba ... or also know as Brazilian Cherry. It has a beautiful "rich" grain texture. It is darker and denser than American Cherry The is American Cherry along with the sides. The Pin Block is Rock Maple. The Bridge and Edge Binding are East Indian Rosewood. I stained both the Outer and Inner Rosettes to compliment the overall "look" of this Psaltery. 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.
