Hammered Dulcimer

Hammered Dulcimer for sale, originally from a kit most likely. Unknown origin after extensive research.

I replaced many pieces on this dulcimer and some minor repairs. Has a nice sound and I enjoyed working on it, however I don't play it that much, so letting it go. Body is in structural sound condition, tuning pegs are stable, and includes a stand.

Parts replaced are as follows:

  • all felt under and above sound board
  • all brass and plastic bridges
  • sound hole covers
  • added a acoustic pickup; three piezo's and 1/4 jack
  • all strings are new piano wire, with custom gauges from Howard Piano Industries

Tuning is similar to the Santoor (ancestor to the Hammered Dulcimer), but can be retuned to standard Hammered Dulcimer tunings. Gauges range from; .013, .014, .016, .018, .020, .022, .024, .026, and .029

The only thing I did not replace was the sound board, which is slightly warped and had previous cosmetic damage, but does not effect sound or playability, thus I kept the original, after doing some minor cleanup on the soundboard.

Includes hammers, tuning wrench, stand, a Hammered Dulcimer book, some extra piano wire, receipts from supplies, the old bridges if wanted, and some Dunlop string cleaner and conditioner if wanted.

Price is firm $250, as I spent way more on the dulcimer and all the replacement parts combined. Open to possible straight trade for electric guitar or possibly something else.
