The standard Plucked Psaltery (our Economy model) is an acoustic, handcrafted folk instrument which can be enjoyed by young students and senior citizens as well as everyone in between. Also known as a lap harp or zither, this trapezoidal shaped musical instrument provides its player with immediate rewards by producing a heavenly sound. Music cards that slip under the strings are what make playing the lap harp so easy. Simply follow the upward and downward lines and pluck the strings which lay directly over the notes below.  This instrument has a range of 2 full octaves in the key of G.  The case is NOT included with this Psaltery but is available.

  • She'll be Coming Around the Mountain
  • Amazing Grace
