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. If coupled with the plush-lined carrying case and playing legs, the Prelude is everything the beginner needs in one attractively-priced package. The Apprentice model is the same instrument, but with a striking black finish.
The Prelude on its own 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.
The Prelude Package includes the instrument and all the above accessories, plus a 28-inch sit-down playing leg, a 5-inch table-top playing leg, and a plush-lined black chipboard C10A case with a separate compartment for legs, hammers and wrench. The instrument also fits in the more deluxe C10 case, and packages can be upgraded to include the C10.
