Something that makes Minstrels Gallery unique is the number of instruments we play, at the last count it was around forty but we are always adding to our collection. Even if you book Minstrels Gallery as a duo we still come with the full compliment of instruments. The picture here shows some of the main ones.

Plucked Psaltery
Click to Hear
The Psaltery is a medieval instrument with plucked metal strings and a body shape that gave it the title 'hog nose.' Though played like a harp it is actually the ancestor of the spinet or harpsichord created by the addition of keys that activated ' jacks' that plucked the strings.
