Thumbnail Filmstrip of Bowed Psaltery Images
Sounds like a violin but easier to play.
Play this instrument with a bow along each edge to produce sweet melodies. Each string is a different note, played separately, with all the natural notes on the right side and the sharps/flats along the left. Very simple to learn.

Decades ago I was captivated by the sound of a bowed psaltery played by the American folk band, Trapezoid, as they entered the concert hall. I have never forgotten the haunting and ethereal sound. So when I saw the bowed psaltery on this website, it called to me until I ordered one. I'm so very glad I did. I play harp and had no experience with bowed instruments but, as described, it is simple to learn and enjoy. The sound is what I remembered and instrument itself is absolutely beautifully made.
