Sam Rizzetta Mini Hammered Dulcimer w/pickup (used)

Regular price $ 1,350.00

This hammered dulcimer came to us as part of a larger estate collection, of mostly Sam Rizzetta (d. 2021) instruments. This is one of his "Mini" models, built in 2004. It is 4-13-12-4 configuration (3 octaves+, 2 octaves continuously chromatic); ultra portable at 33"x14"x4" and only 9 lb! The additional bridges allow for a wider range, including a Low D in the third octave, one octave below the D on the treble bridge, as well as some chromatic notes up top. There are a lot of ways to configure the tuning.

It has an active electronic pickup installed (uses 9V battery), as well as the Tristander leg system. A Main Street padded cases is included, as well as a carrying case for the legs.

Excellent condition - no structural issues and strings are still in good shape. In the main photo, you may see an area that looks to be slightly worn finish, but this is just a grain variation that appears in certain lighting - there is no noticeable finish wear.
