The D45 provides the dulcimer enthusiast with three octaves of sparkling, clean and balanced sound in a 16 treble/15 bass course playing configuration. As an extra enhancement, we've inserted three upper chromatic notes to extend the chromatic range to more than two octaves, a very useful feature. Made entirely of solid woods, this dulcimer has a deep bass that blends beautifully with its clear, even treble.
The D45 was designed to be fitted with dampers. This sustain control device creates a wide range of tonal effects, from the rich and complex natural voice of the undamped strings to a wonderful, wholly muted marimba-like tone with no sustain. The dampers on the D45 can be installed when the instrument is built, or very easily added later by the player.
The D45 offers rich, full sound, overall versatility, and solid-wood elegance, all in a mid-priced, mid-sized instrument. It is a delight for any dulcimer player - from beginning to advanced - to own and play.
C45 case is available separately.
Includes double-sided oval hammers, gooseneck tuning wrench, note guide strips, owner's guidebook.
