Company Profile

Making The World's Best Sounding, Best Built Bowed Psalteries Since 1980

Now offering a broader line of accessories and new, high quality musical instruments for the folk music lover, Unicorn Strings consistently delivers more value for your money than any other folk instrument maker!

Unicorn Strings Music Company was founded in 1980 with one idea in mind - to make a beautiful sounding, high quality musical instrument that was so easy to play anyone could do it.

Since our first bowed psaltery, we have revised our designs continually to improve the quality of sound, craftsmanship and ease of play. We have been honored with numerous awards and ribbons at juried art and craft shows throughout the country and been seen on a variety of television shows, including BABYLON 5. In addition, our instrument was featured in Better Homes and Gardens WOOD magazine and was selected for the premier cover of Festival of American HANDCRAFTS magazine. Throughout our history, we have maintained our commitment to offering finely crafted musical instruments. We have chosen to specialize in the bowed psaltery because of its ability to unlock the music in everyone.

Who We Are

We are a woodworker, a musician and three people who never thought they'd be able to play a musical instrument. Our founders, Gene & Jessica Jaeger and David Beede, had a desire to create a quality musical instrument they could share with others. The developed our first bowed psaltery. Later, after David left to pursue his music, John & Jan Hagerman met Gene & Jessica and fell in love with the psaltery. They left behind other careers to become part of Unicorn Strings and to bring the psaltery to more people. David has rejoined the company and together we continue to pursue our love of music and our desire to bring music to others.
