Sam Rizzetta Piano Hammered Dulcimer (used)

Regular price $ 295.00

This hammered dulcimer came to us via a large estate collection, of mostly Sam Rizzetta (d. 2021) instruments. It is one of his Piano Dulcimers - Sam designed these with a layout more familiar to piano players, and Dusty Strings based their PD-40 model off it. It allows playing all notes of a chromatic scale, and plays equally well in all keys. Sam's website offers a free PDF playing guide here

This one has a top and back made of birch ply. The side rails are rosewood, and top and back rails are mahogany. It measures 28" lower x 14" upper x 15" sides. There is a bracket installed on the back for a single playing leg, but leg is not included. A chipboard case is included which shows wear, but is functional. The dulcimer itself is in great condition. We are not sure of the year made, but most of the other dulcimers in this collection date to the early 2000s. 

Shipping is $75 within the continental US.
