Donna, I've been watching your Youtube videos for quite a while and I thank you so much. I just stumbled across the BP pin and necklace you made a while ago (I was looking for BP jewelry of some sort) and I fell in love! More beautiful than I ever anticipated. Do you still make them? I fully appreciate how much work goes into them, so I expect you to charge properly for them! Thanks for everything.
Thanks for adding me as a friend. I am new to the psaltery world as I have just acquired a James Jones psaltery and love the haunting sound. My main love is the hammered dulcimer, but the psaltery is now being added to my love of musical instruments. I will enjoy being on this website and reading others comments and questions.
Thank you for the welcome! I recently met a lady at a living history event who was playing the bowed psaltery, and it looked like so much fun. I found one on ebay and am enjoying learning to play it very much.
Thanks for the welcome. I am very impressed with your psaltery collection. I have one awesome baritone (Rick Long) and the original foreign one I bought as a "test." I never play that one any more but just in case of a nuclear disaster, I have a back-up. : )
