Hammered Dulcimers 13/12 Chickadee Hammered Dulcimer Package
The Chickadee is designed so you can have a really good instrument that will do everything it is supposed to reliably, sound good as well, but not need a second mortgage to afford. The above link is of it in action so you can clearly hear how it sounds and see it played. It is durable enough that it should last into the next century, and light enough to easily carry around.
Complete package includes dulcimer, case, sitting or standing stand, double face hammers, T- handle tuning wrench, chromatic electronic tuner, and Mel Bay's You Can Teach Yourself Hammered Dulcimer book/ online video.
Baltic birch top and back, cherry rails, hard maple pin blocks and walnut bridges. 12 lbs.
