Psalmodikon Retro

          This is an instrument that Ed built.  He was inspired by an article about the Scandinavian Psalmodikon.  And he decided to give it a go.  Adding his own ideas to a traditionally one string instrument, he put two on his. 

          The box was a purchase from an antique shop.  It measures about 34 3/4" x 6 3/4" x 4".  He used a piece of galvanized steel for the top.  The original instruments were made with a wooden top.  The fret board is oak.  And he handmade the bridge at the far end.   It is tuned to a D and F#. 

          It makes a lovely sound, when strummed or bowed.

             Well done, my "sweet ol' music maker man."       

                        May you hear beautiful music today!     Audrey
