Thanks for the welcome. Yes, that is part of a wall quilt I designed.
I am really excited to learn my beautiful BP. Can't wait till I can really play.

Hi Bonnie!  Thank you for your message and suggestion.  I'm still torn on what size instrument to get.  The Westman's 32n is 23-24" long which without a stand (I really don't want to have to deal with one all the time), I just can't handle that length.  I want to be able to play hymns on my BP which often have middle C in them.  However, it being my fist BP, I wonder if I should just buy a 25n.  This indecision frustrates me cause I would much prefer to be sitting her playing "my" BP.  Thanks again for your input and support.    Gail

Hi Bonnie,

Thanks for the welcome.

Featured Video

Amplified Psaltery with Cello Strings built by Rick Long

This video is a personal favorite because it shows a unique type of bowed psaltery with a gorgeous sound. When I heard it I broke out in goose bumps!
