The plucked psaltery was in many ways the forerunner of keyboard instruments such as the harpsichord, strings resonating over a soundboard and plucked with either the fingers, a quill or a plectrum.

Plucked psalteries came in many shapes the earliest being simple rectangulat boxes and developing into the elegant curves of the Pigsnout psaltery.

The Trapezium Psaltery, is a small, light and highly portable instrument, and it's 15 strings produce a bright sound. It makes an ideal gift for beginners, and fits in well with the medieval and early Tudor periods.
