Handcrafted by the luthiers at Musicmakers
The hammered dulcimer is a fascinating instrument to learn to play. It is kind of like a grand piano with the lid open and the sustain pedal on - you hold the "hammers" in your hands to strike the strings. But on the dulcimer the notes are separated about 1 inch apart, and tuned to just the "do-re-mi" scale (not chromatically) so it is easier to find and play the correct notes.
Our Hammered Dulcimer features a solid mahogany soundboard which provides a warm, rich tone. The frame is made from durable maple laminate, faced with walnut. The back is a gorgeous walnut plywood.
