Bob,

Just received "Carolan Gems" ... will listen to it this evening.  But first, please, what is a "zithero"?  I didn't get a hit on Google, except a person, part of a show, apparently; also, no luck searching in Cyberpluckers archive.

[Bob] A Zithero is an autoharp designed to be diatonic. I coined the name. I built two of them. I will tell the detailed story someday soon. It has the 37 strings but doesn’t try to provide enough room for as many as 21 bars (has 15). It is built on the old A model scale and thickness. I also have an AE. I don't build them to sell.
