Thank you very much for the recommendation!  Just to clarify, my father 
builds (almost all) his instruments from scratch, using plans from various 
sources.  Some plans he uses as-is, some he has modified over the years.

If price is a concern, I know he sells psalteries which are not yet strung 
at a discount.  Stringing the instrument is tedious, but not terribly 
difficult, and the buyer can save some money.

Hope this helps!
