heard one at a John Roberts & Tony Barrand concert at Oberlin College ~1974
Who built your bowed psaltery?
I don't recall, and it's in storage right now. I more actively play some related instruments, the ukelin by the International Musical Corporation of Hoboken, NJ and the violin-guitar by the Marxochime Colony of New Troy, MI. I also own several different types of Marxolin by the Marxochime Colony.
How long have you played the bowed psaltery?
started with the ukelin ~1976
Do you perform with the bowed psaltery?
I perform mostly with the violin-guitar, and sometimes with the ukelin. FMI:www.katherinerhoda.com or look for me on YouTube
Do you build bowed psalteries for sale?
Do you teach the bowed psaltery?
How did you find out about our Psaltery Strings network?

Thank you for your comment on my video, Katherine. I have actually seen a marxaphone before and am excited to have a player of one in our group. I also went to your youtube channel and saw the violin-guitar, a very pretty sounding instrument also.
I'm very pleased to welcome you to Psaltery Strings Katherine, your singing and song writing is wonderful, your Pianolin playing is great, but your Marxophone playing is magical! I don't think I've ever heard anyone play it better. And we have needed someone knowledgable about the Pianolin/Ukelin Bowed Fretless Zither group to write us some history notes.
