|Seller notes:||“This instrument has sen little use and is almost perfect. The only minor flaw is tiny blemishes where sticky dots were temporarily stuck on the wood near each string to identify which key they were. This is minor and does not in any way impact on the performance or overall look of the instrument.”|

Bowed Psaltery 24 Course - 2 Chromatic Octaves
INDIVIDUALLY HANDCRAFTED INSTRUMENT MADE BY TIM MANNING OF MUSIC MAGIC IN SOMERSET and Little Used
This instrument was purchased from Tim a few years ago, but sadly like the Dulcimer I am also selling- (if you check out my other sales), it got very little use and
now deserves to go somewhere where it will be loved and played.
The instrument is in excellent condition but please note comment on condition shown above.
This instrument cost £200 + as I recall, so treat yourself to a wonderful and uniquely haunting sounding instrument or a great Christmas gift for someone close.
The instrument comes with a tuner key and Tuning Chart, also bow, resin and zip up nylon black carry case.
Please note shipping to UK only or collection in person from Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland
Below are details about the maker Tim and this instrument from his own website at Music Magic
Having a range of 2 octaves this instrument is actually a fairly modern invention.
Each note has its own string which may be bowed individually creating
an unusual haunting sound.
