Greg & Tish Westman design and build bowed psalteries at their studio at Tamarack in Beckley, West Virginia. It may not be possible for you to visit them in person but they sell off their website and they can take a custom order by phone or e-mail. They are the people who created the Bowed Psaltery Symphony that takes place at Tamarack every spring, a four-day workshop for all levels of players culminating with a performance for the public. It's awesome fun and great instruction and camaraderie with other BP players. Check out WestmanInstruments.com
