Perhaps it's quibbling, but the references I've found in RealLife refere to this instrument as a psaltry, without the "e." Anyway...

The psaltry is one of the ancestors of the dulcimer. Elepaio of Ratha says that the psaltery is akin to the lyre, I would say it's between the lyre and the zither. Construction wise, it is made up of a soundbox which has a varying number of strings stretched across it. Most comonly seen in the medieval era, it was either plucked or bowed. I'm not sure as to the tool requirements of the Elanthian version.

At present, the only comercially available psalteries are those from Elepaipo's Luthierre, Second Tier Ratha.
