Plucked psaltery

The instrument has a good quality/price ratio and its sound very well. I needed various hours to tune it. Using the tuning provided by the EMS I brooke a string so I decided to changed the tuning model to (from bottom to top) d-e-f#-g-a-b-c-d-e-f#-g-a-b-c-d-e-f#-g-a-b-c-d. It works very without any risk ok string breaking.
