I have one so far... and I truly hope that I don't get addicted. I already have MDAS (mountain dulcimer acquisition syndrome - at the moment I own two); I really don't need another! I also play guitar and am learning the bodrahn. Enough!

Renaissance Fair... where else?
Who built your bowed psaltery?
I have a Unicorn, which I bought at Apple Mountain Music in Albuquerque.
How did you find out about our Psaltery Strings network?
Serendipity; I was looking for info on how to bow and otherwise play well and tripped over the group. A nice find, which I shared in my blog: "Notes Around the Bend". Here's the link if anyone is interested. http://notesfromaroundthebend.wordpress.com/
