Hi, I'm new to the bowed psaltery and just got a 1985 Unicorn Strings Psaltery. I need to replace some strings. I know the present system on the psaltery is using a wire on 2 pins. I am familiar with ball end strings. Has anyone tried converting this type of psaltery to using a single ball end string for each pin? I think it's got the original strings so I should probably put all new ones on it anyway.
Hi Barb, please see my discussions: "Restringing a Unicorn Strings Psaltery" and others just on stringing in general on My member page.
Thanks so much. the info is very helpful. Barb
