This is one of my compact model 15 string Psalteries here fitted with Fluorocarbon strings that I use on my kravik lyres.

I have kept the dimensions to 24”/604mm long

With Fluorocarbon strings you get a tuning in G4 to G6 with a harp like quality to the sound with easy playability with fingertips or nails.

This same design can also be tuned to D4 to D6 in yellow Brass wire to give a very different sound with a right jangly sound with rich harmonics.
