Bowed Psaltery - KIT

Bowed Psaltery - KIT

Product Details

Difficulty Rating

This bowed psaltery design is the best we've seen. You'll love how the hardwood frame fits together. After gluing and clamping the box, you'll drill 70 holes for the pins and marker dots. We provide the drill bits, but you'll need a drill press to do a nice job. Apply the finish and install the rosette. Installing the hardware and strings is a detail job that requires patience, but the end result is worth the effort.

What's Included:
  • All pre-cut wood parts
  • All required musical hardware
  • Complete set of strings and tuning wrench
  • Product Manual

The Musicmakers Kit Warranty

Need replacement parts?

Just notify us of the problem. We are generous with spare parts, but we may ask you to return the defective part if we think we can salvage it. We may ask you to pay for replacement parts if you damaged them during construction. After one year from date of purchase, we may not be able to supply replacement parts if we have discontinued the kit.

Need help with construction?

We are happy to finish assembling a kit for you. The basic fee is the difference between the kit price and the finished price shown in our current catalog (regardless of the price you paid for the kit). If you have done some of the assembly, we may be able to discount the construction fee, unless we need to re-do some of your work. If you want us to do only part of the construction, please call us about the price.

Desire a refund?

We give refunds, or exchanges, for re-usable kits returned within one year of purchase, regardless of reason for return or stage of construction. You must present proof of purchase from MUSICMAKERS. Such refunds will be for merchandise only, not shipping, handling, or insurance fees. We will refund the price of only those parts that are returned in re-saleable condition.

If we made an error on the original shipment, we will pay for return shipping. Please call us for the proper procedure.

Everything in the kit is of excellent quality and well designed. The instructions are complete and easy to follow. A drill press for this one is almost a must for accuracy, other than that a few clamps and sandpaper are all that is needed.

I just finished building a MusicMakers bowed psaltery kit using instructions a six year old could follow. It looks and sounds great. MusicMakers' customer service is unsurpassed. I am well pleased with their products and the way they do business.
