In the 19th century, several related zithers came into use, notably the guitar zither and the autoharp. In the 20th century, the bowed psaltery came into wide use. It is set up in a triangular format so that the end portion of each string can be bowed. Similar instruments include the large cimbalom and the smaller dulcimer, both usually played using small hammers to hit the strings.

Do you make Psaltery’s with a pickup? I am considering one but am confused between the Tenor and Also Psaltery? Can you help with some clarification please? I believe the Bass is much larger. I am not interested in this model.
