Hourglass 4-string Appalachian dulcimer with geared tuners, solid spruce top, laminate walnut back & sides, heart soundholes, solid scroll pegbox. Chipboard case included.
Our senior luthier repaired a crack by the lower right soundhole, and a seam separation at the top of back. He also did a setup on the instrument with new strings.
Capritaurus dulcimers are still made today by Howard Rugg.
This instrument is part of the collection from the late Johnny Fox, sword-swallower and performer at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. We are selling it on behalf of Johnny's estate.
