When we come upon a new material we like to try it out and see how it works on a hammered dulcimer. The top and back of this dulcimer are Meranti marine plywood, and it is wonderful material. No patches, no voids, just premium material and it works just fine for a hammered dulcimer. It is also pretty, looking vaguely like mahogany. We probably won't be incorporating it into our line, though. Too expensive and difficult to source, but now we know.
At any rate, this is a good dulcimer, have a listen to the video:
$650.00 as a complete outfit with free shipping to anywhere in the 48 contiguous states.
