Silly me, I thought this was a dulcimer. NOPE, it’s a bowed psaltery from Unicorn Strings! Bowed psalteries are touted as a very easy instrument to learn. It’s made of beautiful wood see the photos and please zoom in!! about twenty inches long and about eight inches wide at the base. Strings run vertically and you play it with the bow included. You play the notes up the sides. There’s even a’laid in’ acetate note chart to help you learn the’keys’. It’s not attached… Easily removeable, just lifts right out! This particular model is the Diamond Psaltery so named because of the diamond shape in the center. Inside that opening you can see the Unicorn Strings label and date with this particular musical instrument being made in 2000. It appears to have not been played much, if at all, even all the hairs on the bow are still intact! Includes the instrument, the bow, a tuner tool, extra wires, a rosin cube and a cassette tape of instructions. (and the original box shown). YES, I was very careful taking photos! Please see all sides and please zoom in!! Will make a great Father’s Day gift… Or a gift for your favorite musician… You know, the one that can play anything!
