Plucked Paisley Psaltry

$2,500.00 inc. GST

This instrument is an invention inspired by paisley. The tear-drop shape of the body, bridge and tuning pegs, along with the soundboard pattern are all derived from the original Indian-style of Paisley. It falls into the psaltry class of instruments more or less, and it is a plucked instrument, hence, it being called A Plucked Paisley Psaltry. Copper tubing was used as the bridge saddle and nut, its lustre contributing to the rustic charm and character of this piece.
