EMS Plucked Psaltery with Padded Case


The EMS plucked psaltery is a well made inexpensive instrument with a typical 'pigsnout' shape. Played either by resting on the lap or leaning against the chest and plucked either with fingers or with a quill. Made from solid beech wood and spruce soundboard.

The EMS plucked psaltery comes with a carrying bag, an extra set of strings and a tuning key.
