    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.

    A Psimple Psaltery is an excellent reference on the bowed Psaltery

    5/5 Haverdude (Missouri) - See all my reviews This review is from: A Psimple Psaltery: Building a Bowed Psaltery, From Start to Finish (Paperback) Being a cello player I found the bowed psaltery a very fascinating instrument. It's simplicity to play and it's pure, haunting sound made me want to find out more about this instrument. I have built a dulcimer so I thought that I might be able to build a psaltery as well. I did a search on the Internet and found a lot of information. However, I have not found a better resource for building a bowed psaltery than this book "A Psimple Psaltery: Building a Bowed Psaltery, from Start to Finish". This book is very easy to understand. The author writes very clearly so that even the most novice builder can be walked through step by step to complete a psaltery. Also, I have e-mailed the author with a couple of questions. Not only did I get a reply but I received very detailed answers. I would recommend this book to anyone that has any interest in the bowed psaltery.

    Great Instructions

    5/5 H82Diet (Gettysburg, PA) - See all my reviews This review is from: A Psimple Psaltery: Building a Bowed Psaltery, From Start to Finish (Paperback) I am not a woodworker but I was determined to make one of these for my daughter as the finished ones we saw at a Heritage Festival were $175.I thought the instructions were crystal clear and very easy for me to follow. I had to borrow the use of some of the power tools but I was able to make the entire thing on my own and it came out GREAT! I also put one of those fancy laser cut medallions in the sound hole which finished it off nicely. Thanks Eric!
