(SOLD) Alto Bowed Psaltery / #415



Price: $290

The soundboard is medium WESTERN RED CEDAR. It has a swirl design for the soundhole. The back and sides are maple with a small knothole smack in the middle of the back. It is harmless and looks kinda neat.

The sound is right there in the middle between loud and mellow. It resonates well and is pleasingly melodic.
