The two string dulcimer comes in natural finish, but we could do a custom color for you if you wanted. Basic package for it is the dulcimer, tuning wrench, hammers, table top peg, and custom box/case. It does not include the kids’ Fledgling version note strips and book, but we can add them if you want (you will need to contact us for this).
Great Beginner’s Hammered Dulcimer
If you are a beginning hammered dulcimer player, add on Mel Bay’s “You Can Teach Yourself Hammered Dulcimer” for $14.99. This book will easily get you started on learning how to play! This dulcimer is simple to tune. Like most dulcimers, there are two strings per course, making up 32 strings total. The Fledgling seems to keep its tune pretty well, which is attractive to a lot of beginner players who are still learning the basics of tuning.
Add on the Backpack Case for Easy Travel!
The Fledgling is small and light (only 6 pounds!) which makes it ideal for travel. You can also add the backpack case made right here at Songbird for $125 (case color may vary). With the backpack case, it only weighs 8 pounds total. This Fledgling version is perfect for backpackers, travelers, or someone who just doesn’t enjoy lugging around their heavy dulcimer.
