A unique psaltery in the style of a 13th century Spanish instrument depicted in the Cantigas de Santa Maria illuminated manuscript. This psaltery is 12 inches square and approximately 2 inches deep. There are two octaves of 15 steel strings tuned diatonically, in C. It is salvaged black walnut and maple. The tone is bright and resonates well.

    This was my first Ron Cook instrument. The unusual wood, the hand carving and the bright tone won me over and I ordered a larger psaltery right away. Each of them has its own "personality" and I use them differently. This mini serves as I work out the fingering for sheet music and is my travel companion, much like harpists have a travel harp.
    I hope and expect to own more of Ron's work in the future.
    PS Ron, if you are listening, make some fun new psalteries. :-)

    This is the second instrument I've bought from Ron Cook. It is gorgeous to look at and has a warm, resonant sound when played. With three octaves from C3-C6 it allows a wonderful range and space for two handed playing. Ron has a gift for selecting wood pieces and blending them to create spectacular one-of-a-kind instruments. Let's just say I will be keeping my eye on his shop to see what new delights he offers up in the future.
