Yes, chromatically fretted. 3 steel strings- two of them open drones, and only the melody string with frets under it.  Thanks, I'm really enjoying it!

Congrats, looks nice - that's got an interesting sound/tone to it, is it chromatic, with drone strings? (Is it steel strings?)

I just got a custom langspil (a traditional Icelandic zither) a couple weeks ago and have been really enjoying playing it.  The biggest struggle is with my bowing- bowing is always the hardest thing on bowed instruments, needless to say).  But the struggle is fun and I'm slowly making progress.

This "Three Ravens" is the first tune I've managed to play more than one time through without too many horrible 'dying cat' bow squeaks:
