Prelude Hammered Dulcimer by Dusty Strings

Regular price $ 720.00

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

The Prelude is the perfect setup for a beginning hammered dulcimer player. Built with a laminated Finland birch soundboard and back, it is an exceptionally sturdy, stable instrument that 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 model is the same instrument, but with a striking black finish.

The Prelude comes with the basics to get someone started playing: single-sided wooden hammers, a T-handle tuning wrench, note indicator strips and the Hammered Dulcimer Owner's Guidebook.

We recommend purchasing this instrument with a padded cordura C10 case, and we most often stock it with the case for sale at our shop. Both options are listed above for you to choose from.
