Two Octave Zither with Redwood sound board and Curly Maple sides and Cherry back

$65 plus $14 shipping

  • 15 string zither (These instruments are also called lap harps or plucked psalteries.) 

  • Tuning is two octaves in the Key of G. The lowest G on this instrument is the next G above middle C.

  • Easy to play with tune cards.

  • All solid wood construction. These instruments are not constructed of ply and they are made by me in my shop in Virginia.


  • Their size is 13 1/2" X 6 3/4" X 2"

  • The back and sides of my zithers can be Walnut, Cherry, or Mahogany. The soundboard (the front of the instrument) usually is either Redwood, Spruce, Mahogany or Cedar with either a comet or star like sound hole design. Some of my instruments are available with Curly or Birdseye Maple in the sides (see photos below). These instruments usually have soundboards of Redwood and backs of either Mahogany, Cherry or Oak.
