Description

D45 Hammered Dulcimer

The D45 provides the dulcimer enthusiast with three octaves of sparkling, clean and balanced sound in a 16 treble and 15 bass course configuration. As an extra enhancement, we've inserted three upper chromatic notes to extend the chromatic range to more than two octaves - a very useful feature that increases the versatility of the instrument. Made entirely of solid wood, this dulcimer has a deep bass that blends beautifully with its clear, even treble.

The D45 was designed to be fitted with dampers, which are a sustain control device that allow a wide range of tonal effects, from the rich and complex natural voice of the undamped strings to a wonderful, wholly muted marimba-like tone with no sustain. The dampers on the D45 can be installed when the instrument is built, or easily added later by the player.

Combining a rich, full sound, versatility and solid-wood elegance in a mid-sized and mid-priced instrument, the D45 will be a delight for any dulcimer player, from beginning to advanced.

Features

- 3 octaves
- Solid sapele soundboard and back

Specs & Tuning

RANGE
The D45 has three octaves of range, and the lowest note is the D below middle C. There are 16 courses of strings on the treble bridge and 15 courses on the bass bridge - a configuration often referred to as 16/15. Easily available keys are G, D, C, F and A, along with their relative minors. There are a variety of chromatic notes available in each key.

A special feature of the D45 is three extra chromatic notes (D#5, G#5, and Bb5) which have been added to replace notes which are duplicated in the normal tuning pattern.
