The psaltery arrived in perfect shape. I tuned it immediately and tried it. I am VERY pleased. You did exactly what I asked for. The instrument is beautiful and sounds lovely. Also the carry-case is well-made and useful. Thanks so much for answering all my questions and creating exactly the instrument I wanted.
