JRS Grande Concertmaster XL #981
  • JRS Grande Concertmaster XL #981

    This is a wonderful JRS Grande Concertmaster XL.  As is typical for our professional recording dulcimers this one is one-of-a-kind.  One uncommon feature on this dulcimer is that it has the Super Bass on the left side, rather than the right where we normally place them.  It has a rich tone and a smooth balance of dynamics all the way up the scale.  I have this instrument back because the lovely woman who owned it unfortunately passed away a few years back.  This is a sad one for me because she was a friend!  This exact model with all it's features if ordered new today would run "significantly" more.  This one ... is "experienced" ... as they say.  And one of a kind with a beautiful, although, sad ... story.
