Does anyone have a 30-string tenor Psaltery (preferably with the lowest string as F) for sale. I live in Canada.
I have a few 30 stringed tenors available. I'm also in the final stages of completing a couple this week to increase my Christmas inventory. Are you looking for a new one or used? The psalteries I build start on a G ( lowest string ). Most of the songs played on bowed psalteries start on a G, C, or D and sometimes A. I think a low F, as the first string would be used very little. A violin, Tenor banjo, and mandolin usually have the lowest note starting on a "G".
I have a couple of higher end models ( highly figured wood ) or I could provide a standard "player" instrument with ( lower graded wood) at a lower cost. Are you interested in just the instrument or do you need the accessories (bow, electronic tuner, rosin, tuning tool) ?
I have sold three instruments to Canadians so far but the shipping costs and customs duties make it a little more expensive.
YES,I have one, built by Rick LONG in 2013. I have pictures if you desire them. I tried to learn to play
this, but honestly I do not have the "gift"of music. So, this instrument is seldom used. Attached are SOME PHOTOS. Low note is G and this instrument is right-handed.
What is your offer price?
Thanks, Keith! It looks lovely. I bought from Charlie and love the instrument he sold me but perhaps other folk will be watching this thread.
