The Walnut 16/15 Finch Complete Package retails for $799.00 on our web site. Since this is an experimental one, and the top wood is unusual, we'll sell it to you for $499.00 plus free shipping so it will get a new home. A really good deal for a beautiful dulcimer! It won't last long at this price.
The complete outfit consists of the instrument above, case, stand of your choice whether to play standing or seated, double face hammer, T- handle tuning wrench, electronic tuner, and book, Mel Bay's You Can Teach Yourself Hammered Dulcimer which has an online video that goes with it.
The top is our new tongue and groove design. Composed of 7 individual boards joined by tight fitting tongue and groove joints not glued to allow each board to shrink or swell as needed with changes in humidity and not put stress on the instrument. It makes for a much happier, more stable dulcimer. It needs no special care, and you can take it anywhere any time. It will just play well and sound good. The sound holes all need to be in the back. Cutting sound holes in one of these tops would damage the structure.
Red Grandis is not only a very stable, reliable wood, it is also light. This dulcimer weighs only a little more than 15 pounds.
