Hi Debra,

No, I never purchased a psaltry. I attended the Bluff Park Art Show this weekend and looked for the man who used to sell them there but did not see him. I would probably need to get one second-hand. I would love to barter for one! I have a keyboard I would trade for one! Anyway, thanks for offering to let me borrow your psaltry. I am so busy with piano teaching right now but would love to attend a jam session sometime! Happy music-making! Cindy

Amplified Psaltery with Cello Strings built by Rick Long
