This is a beautiful, very well cared for 3 Octave Chromatic Dusty Strings Hammered Dulcimer. It has a Quarter-sawn Sapele top, Walnut Bridges and Dusty's carved Maple leaf soundhole rosette. I've been carrying Dusty Strings Hammered Dulcimers for 40 years. They were the very first instruments I every carried besides my own! It's been a long and valued relationship. This particular D-500 comes with a super nice Airline worthy Travel Case. Very protective and very light to boot! Also a set of Dusty's signature double sided Hammers and gooseneck tuning wrench. New ... these run $2895 ... the case would cost at least $300! This one I'm letting go for $1895 ... case included.
