    Bowed Psaltery book

    5/5 Luvin' Amazon! (Florida) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bowed Psaltery: The String Instrument Anyone Can Play - Play Celtic, Folk or Hymn (Paperback) This includes a nice introduction to the bowed psaltery, basic music theory and a few songs. The print is large, which is great for those of us with older eyes. It is a bit too easy for me and I wish that there were more songs, but still, it is a well presented book for a beginner.

    Damaged string

    4/5 Amazon Customer (Robbinsville, NC) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Psaltery, Soprano, Left-Handed I received the psaltery in the appropriate time that they said I would. My only complaint is that it was wrapped in bubble wrap, which you would think would be good, but one of the outside strings was damaged to the point that I had to replace it. Would like to see different packaging for this product, to get it safely to where it is going. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 14, 2014

    A great little beginner instrument.

    5/5 Amazon Customer (Detroit, MI USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Psaltery, Soprano, Left-Handed Everything is fine with this. Came with rosin (made in the USA), bow, tuning wrench, spare string wire, and a cloth bag. The quality is very nice.This is a musical instrument that, while it is sized for children, it is easy to pick up and learn. I was happy to find a left handed version for my little lefty.If you need instructions on how to play it, pop over to the books section and buy a book, or go to YouTube for videos. They're really easy to play.The pros: nice craftsmanship, solid wood, decorative sound hole, made for little hands.The cons: arrived out of tune, but that's okay, I have a tuner. The sound hole decoration popped out, but it was easily popped back in., September 21, 2015

    Not what I expected

    3/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I expected a higher quality instrument for an adult. It was more child size and came with NO instructions making it impossible for me as a first time user. I may have been doing something wrong, but am usure. Was extremely disappointed.
