About this book
What's not to like about the bowed psaltery?

    A Great Experience

    0 5/5 Maryann Delance - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Psaltery, Alto, Left-Handed This item is excellent for the left handed musician. I bought it for a 15 year old who has wanted one for 2 years. She has learned to play it with ease---it only took her 2days to build up a group of melodies to demonstrate her skill. All in all, it's been a great experience for her & for all of us to see the joy she has when she learns a new song. I'm glad we waited till she was 15 as I think this helped her have the attention span needed to master this rather unusual instrument. All's well that ends well ! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 13, 2014

    Damaged string

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 14, 2014

    A great little beginner instrument.

    0 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. 0, September 21, 2015

    Not what I expected

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 13, 2013
