Here's what Dusty Strings says about their D-45 Hammered Dulcimer!


  • 3 octaves
  • solid sapele soundboard and back
  • traditional 5th-interval tuning
  • 16/15 configuration

The D45 provides the dulcimer enthusiast with three octaves of sparkling, clean and balanced sound in a 16 treble and 15 bass course configuration.  Made entirely of solid wood, this dulcimer has a deep bass that blends beautifully with its clear, even treble.  The Dampers allow a wide range of tonal effects, from the rich and complex natural voice of the undamped strings to a wonderful, wholly muted marimba-like tone with no sustain. Combining a rich, full sound, versatility and solid-wood elegance in a mid-sized and mid-priced instrument, the D45 will be a delight for any dulcimer player, from beginning to advanced.

Includes gooseneck tuning wrench, double-sided oval hammers, and note guide strips.
