This is a lot of range for the least expense in a 16/15 (3 Octave) Hammered Dulcimer that we offer. In other words ... it's a lot of instrument for an unbelievably low price. It comes either "on it's own" ... or in a package. This particular Hammered Dulcimer is made entirely of Tulip Poplar except for Maple pin blocks and Walnut bridges. The entire instrument is stained with a "brown" stain which, many feel, makes the strings a little easier to see! It is relatively low in sustain compared to other Hammered Dulcimers which many players like. If you purchase just the instrument it come with hammers and a tuning wrench ... but if you upgrade to the Woodthrush "package" ... it also comes with an Instruction Book, and Electonic Tuner, a Case and a Stand. Everything a beginner needs to get up and running!
This instrument is the most value, either by itself ... or as a "package", for a solid wood 16/15 Hammered Dulcimer!
