Hognose Psaltery-Plucked Psaltery-Lap Harp - $175 (Helena)


condition: new
make / manufacturer: Musicmakers
model name / number: hogfin
size / dimensions: 28" long, 10" high

I purchased this beautiful instrument along with some other musical instruments. Not enough time for everything. This plucked psaltery has the characteristic "pig-snout" shape. It is also called a lap harp, but this is much larger than the ones that you normally see. Psalteries were popular through the Renaissance and Baroque periods. This beautiful instrument is NOT A TOY, although children can pick this up and start to learn scales and songs in no time. Professionally made with quality workmanship on this psaltery, rosettes, painted trim and the front is made with laminated wood for strength. You'll be impressed with the rich tone and volume of this instrument. Use it for performing, especially in period musical productions. Included is a set of song sheets that slide right under the strings to help you learn to play and a tuning wrench.
