      Hammered Dulcimer

      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.

      I have made 3 of these from plans. I gave two away. This instrument is as good or better than any you can buy. Careful selection of the tone woods for the back and sound board can alter the instrument to favor the upper or lower range. It is so sensitive it will play itself from vibrations in the room. Mine does and both of the ones I made for gifts have reported the same.
