Tuning a Bowed Psaltery

365 Project #140 Bowed Psaltery
We have a friend who has a musical instrument called a Bowed Psaltery that she's interested in selling. She asked Don to sell it for her on ebay so he's taken pictures and will probably put it up for auction next week. Meanwhile, I thought I'd take a look at it, watch some videos to see how to play it and tune it. I love it because it's beautiful and has an amazing sound, but I don't love the sound well enough to put in the time learning it and do it justice. I want instruments in the hands of people who really want to play. Pretty, isn't it? And it's a good one, has great tone.
