    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

    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

    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.

    5/5 mom'sreads - See all my reviews This review is from: 20 Celtic Tunes for the Bowed Psaltery (Paperback) Very good music book for the psaltery or other treble instrument. The music is easy to read and also gives each note by name to help those who aren't music reader. And cords are also given for added enrichment. Bolton has collect a very nice bookful of Celtic tunes here. I have really enjoyed playing songs from this book on my psaltery.

    Hit or Miss

    3/5 Anonymous - See all my reviews This review is from: Adjustable Bowed Psaltery Bow (Electronics) I bought two of these, to be used for double bowing a psaltery. One was decent enough, for the price, but the other completely fell apart the first time I used it. These are not the least expensive on the market, and I was very disappointed. I have emailed Folkcraft, who I purchased them from, about the problem, and am awaiting a response. So, if they respond, I will post an update. By the looks of the two I received, there are quality control issues in the manufacture of them.Update: Folkcraft did contact me, and I am expecting a replacement. So, fingers crossed that the replacement is not flawed. It is reassuring that the seller (Folkcraft) is honorable. I'm giving the item three stars instead of one, because although one of the two bows I purchased wasn't strung properly, Folkcraft is covering the cost of a replacement. The item gets one star from me, and Folkcraft gets two thumbs up for good customer service. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 18, 2016

    A smaller psaltry bow!

    I have a walnut and maple handmade Psaltry ordered from a well-known couple who have made old-fashioned instruments for years at the Tamarack Artisans Hall in West Virginia. So, I am used to the longer, handmade walnut bows with real horsehair strings!The Roosebeck bow was smaller and has white polyester strings that were not all tightened to the same tension that I was used to using. I suppose you can use scissors to cut-off loose strings??I tried-out the Roosebeck bow, but went back to the comfortable feeling of my handmade, longer bow.I returned the Roosebeck Bow to Amazon and had no problems getting a refund.The Roosebeck bow would be more suitable for beginnig psaltry players. Once you get used to an old-style walnut-bow's size and tone, it may be harder to switch over to factory produced bows. Other customers may enjoy this smaller bow. The price is of Roosebeck Bow is much lower of course than that of a handcrafted wooden and horsehair bow, so some... 3/5 Sue - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    It is pretty and works ok

    3/5 cooking mama - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Psaltery Bow (Electronics) It is pretty and works ok. I didn't read the print where it says it is not real horse hair. Maybe our strings are old and sharp, haven't changed them out yet, but when we play our ukelin the bow leaves behind white stuff that is scrapping off on the strings. The ad says what it is I just didn't read. It matches our ukelin nicely. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 28, 2015
