Apprentice — Tuning and Strings


The perfect setup for a beginning hammered dulcimer player is available in a choice of finishes: the striking black of the Apprentice, or the clear, glowing lacquer of the Prelude. Built with laminated birch soundboard and back, both are exceptionally sturdy, stable instruments that are a pleasure to hear and play. These 2-1/2 octave models offer a sweet, balanced sound. Their 12 treble and 11 bass course string arrangement corresponds to all the well-known instruction materials. When coupled with the plush-lined carrying case and playing legs, the Apprentice is everything the beginner needs in one attractively priced package.

Superscript numbers indicate octaves (C4 is Middle C).
Dots indicate marked courses.
All strings are plain steel with loop ends.
Wire gauges are shown in inches.
We also carry a wide range of Hammered Dulcimer books to help jump start the learning process. They can be found here.
