20th century re-imagining of the psaltery
Item AddedView Basket Now
The bowed psaltery is a 20th century re-imagining of the psaltery, a plucked zither dating as far back as ancient times.
The instrument produces a high, almost glassy tone similar to other fretless zithers, and does an excellent job of standing out in any mix.
With a sound reminiscent of its medieval roots, it's a sure match for any fantasy or historical track.
We have painstakingly chromatically sampled the entire range of a two-octave example with 14 total articulations ranging from the original bowed to plucked, picked, and even struck with a hammered dulcimer mallet, all with up to 8 round robins.
