The new instructional DVD, "How to Care for and Play the Bowed Psaltery with Rick Long" is finally available. It is totally new from the previous DVD that focused primarily on the soprano bow psaltery I build. The new one is two hours long and covers all three sizes of the bowed psalteries I build.
These are the soprano, tenor, and baritone bowed psaltery. You will benefit from my 29+ years of experience with the bowed psaltery.
If you have bought a bowed psaltery and didn't receive much information as to caring for and how to properly play it, you will find the info on this DVD of great help.

I have stopped selling electronic tuners. I recommend a good chromatic tuner with a clip-on tuner pick-up. I have recently found that you can buy them online from several sources for a lot less than I could ever purchase and resell them for.
If you need a recommendation for a good brand of tuner that works good, just contact me and I'll help you find a web site with a really good price.
