This psaltery I introduce here is based on which appears on Cantiga n 290 de Sta. María by Alfonso X “The Wise”, and keeps some kinship with the Turkish Qanun. Its singular stringing in groups of 4 strings, gives option to tune it diatonically or in chords. It is made in Walnut with Spruce top, Ebony pegs, leather tailpieces and parchment rosettes, and finished with oil and wax.
String lengths: from 450 to 640 mm.
