Hi Devon. I haven't been working with it lately, but I do love it. However, I can't really see double bowing it. I have a large regular type of psaltery for that.

On his site, I see that he now has a double psaltery bow for playing thirds ($75). Did you try to contact him? I don't see a you tube with double bowing it and a quick glance to his site didn't show one. If you do hear anything, please let me know. I was just thinking about getting it out and tuning it. Sigh, so many instruments, so little time!!!
