Bowed Psalteries - Current Stock

I make three sizes of bowed psalteries; the Soprano, Alto and Baritone. Click on the links below to see photos of what I currently have available.
Note: Many of the instruments pictured are not strung up. I often don't install pins and strings until the psaltery is ordered.

All psalteries come with:

  • An Owner's Manual
  • Tuning and String gauge chart
  • Horsehair bow
  • Rosin
  • Extra wire
  • Quality Tuning Wrench
  • A quality soft case adds $45

Custom Bowed Psaltery

If you don't see the exact psaltery you'd like, I can make either size psaltery custom in your choice of woods. I can also make them left handed at no extra charge. If you have me build a custom instrument using my sound holes designs (the star or comet) or just a simple circular hole, the cost is the same as I normally charge. I also can build quite fancy instruments with custom sound hole designs. Custom sound hole designs add an extra $75 to the base price. Custom instruments usually take 2-3 weeks. Send me an email if you have a notion you'd like an individualized Custom Bowed Psaltery. You can see examples of Custom instruments here.
