I have a psaltery on its way. It should arrive this Wednesday. I've bought it online, second-hand via Goodwill auction. A gamble, but I think it will be fine. Fingers crossed!
I've never played a bowed instrument so I know the bowing technique will not be easy but I'm patient. I do read music and understand how you're meant to play the psaltery - what the strings mean. This is a 2-octave, and I think it's right handed. Now I'm a left handed person - but play other instruments the standard rightie way, not southpaw - so getting used to the bow and which hand to hold the bow and which hand to hold the psaltery will be all part of the fun of a new journey.
