The new Sparrow Chromatic is the smallest and lightest member of our Multiple Section Soundboard solid top hammered dulcimers. The Sparrow’s top is solid African Mahogany and is composed of 6 individual boards connected together with tight fitting tongue and groove joints which are not glued. This allows the wood to shrink and swell as it needs to with changes in humidity but still act acoustically as one board. Works just great and makes a much happier, more stable dulcimer. No need to worry about it when conditions change. Take it to Death Valley? Fine. Trip to the Amazon? Ditto. This is the most reliable small dulcimer built.


Weighs about 12 pounds, and is fully chromatic over 2 1/2 octaves with a total 3 1/2 octave range. 38” long and 15 3/4” wide. Top is African Mahogany, back is laminated Birch for strength, sides are Hard Maple, the bindings are Curly Maple, and the bridges are Walnut.


The Sparrow Chromatic Dulcimer can be purchased dulcimer only (includes hammers and tuning wrench) or as a package (case, stand, hammers, tuning wrench, and book).
