Apprentice Hammered Dulcimer by Dusty Strings

Sale price $ 695.00 Regular price $ 720.00

The Apprentice has been discontinued by Dusty Strings. We have one with case included remaining in stock!
  • 2½ octaves
  • laminated Finland birch soundboard and back
  • traditional 5th-interval tuning
  • 12/11 configuration

The Apprentice is the perfect setup for a beginning hammered dulcimer player. Built with a laminated Finland birch soundboard and back and finished in a striking black (makes the strings "pop" visually a bit more than the natural-finish Prelude), the instrument is exceptionally sturdy and stable and offers a sweet, balanced sound. The 2½ octave, 12 treble and 11 bass course string arrangement corresponds to all the well-known instructional materials.

The Apprentice comes with the following accessories: padded C10 cordura case, single-sided wooden hammers, a T-handle tuning wrench, note indicator strips, and the Hammered Dulcimer Owner's Guidebook.
