Psalmodikon

I needed to record a sample of our Psalmodikon and this is what I came up with. I think I overdubbed 5 tracks, all psalmodikon, some bowed and some plucked. It gives you a good sense of how this unique instrument sounds.  The title comes from the numbering system used to notate music for the psalmodikon.  This system is is known as sifferskrift and has been in use with the psalmodikon since the early 1800s.
