Are there any resources out there for learning to use two bows, or am I on my own? I'm not quite ready to tackle it yet; I'm still new at this instrument, but at some point, I'll want to try it.Continue
If you want to come and meet some other bowed psaltery players in person and maybe take a workshop or two come to Cochocton Dulcimer Days. It's very bowed psaltery friendly. I'll be there with a group of psaltery players, were going to play for a half hour on stage Saturday morning (6-16) There will definitely be extra psalteries around if yours isn't done and there is a beginners psaltery class and a beginners music reading, both by Tish Westman, one of the best psaltery players I know. Music and good people, you can't ask for more!

Welcome to Psaltery Strings Tim! We're so happy to have you join us. Another member just finished a psaltery from the plans in a Psimple Psaltery and my favorite psaltery is one built by Eric Meier.
What Ren Faires do you play at? I'm just west of Chicago and haven't seen a psaltery at the Bristol Ren Faires for many, many years.
Please visit often and keep us posted on your progress building your psaltery and your performing at the Ren Faires.
