  • This is a 16/15 "bantam weight" hammered dulcimer with Walnut end rails. The top (or soundboard) is beautifully quarter-sawn Sipo (or Sipo Mahogany) with some striking cross grain.   The bridges are Rosewood and are marked where the major keys A, D, C, G, F and Bb start.  It has a solid Mahogany back and features "Harrison Rose" soundhole inlays. The pinblocks are Maple. It is very light weighing under 12 and a half pounds.  It has 16 treble courses and 15 bass courses in the diatonic tuning scheme.  This instrument has extra slots along the edge of the soundboard to make it more vibrant and lateral internal bracing to make the instrument lighter and give it a larger "voice."

    It comes standard with student hammers, a T-handle tuning wrench and a tuning chart.  All other accessories are sold separately.


    This lovely Bantam Weight model is extremely portable with excellent volume and tone.  The soundboard is quite stunning with a clear lacquer finish.
