15 string zither
These instruments are also called lap harps or plucked psalteries
Two Octaves in the Key of G. The lowest G on this instrument is the next G above middle C
Easy to play with tune cards
All solid wood construction.
These instruments are not constructed of ply and they are made by me.
Their size is 13 1/2" X 6 3/4" X 2"
The back and sides of my zithers can be Walnut, Cherry, or Mahogany. The soundboard (the front of the instrument) usually is either Redwood, Spruce, Mahogany or Cedar. Some of my instruments are available with Curly or Birdseye Maple in the sides (see photo below). These instruments usually have soundboards of Redwood and backs of either Mahogany, Cherry or Oak. I am now maintaining an inventory list for your convenience so you can order or reserve specific zithers.
I always have plenty of zithers in stock and ready to ship.
Please indicate lst and 2nd wood choices with soundhole preference (either the star or comet ). The instrument at the top has a star like soundhole and a spruce soundboard, the one below a redwood soundboard with the comet like soundhole.
Sound quality is consistent for all instruments. Since the instrument is so small there isn't a lot of difference between the different woods.
