A Psimple Psaltery by Eric Meier

Book description
They have the most wonderful ringing sound of nearly any musical instrument heard, with a haunting sustain that makes the music seemingly float in midair and tingle in your ears. They are easy to play, (featuring a range of two octaves, and no fingering positions to learn), and in their most basic form are fairly simple to build. As with any instrument, the bowed psaltery can be as simple or extravagant as you want to make it. In this book, a plan is pre-sented for a simple psaltery. By changing the layout and shape to a basic triangle, and eliminating some of the more intricate steps—along with giving in-depth and thorough directions—building a bowed psaltery is available for just about everyone. Everything you need to know in order to build a bowed psaltery can be found in this book. All that is needed are basic woodworking tools, a few small specialty items available online, and a persistent passion for making music.
