This is my standard 2 Octave Bowed Psaltery with a Spruce top (or soundboard). The frame is made of Northern Rock Maple and the back is usually solid Mahogany although I sometimes make them of Cherry, Walnut or Maple. Every one of these 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 two extra looped strings. I inlay dots in every G, C, C# and F# playing position to help you find your way around.
