Standard 16/15/7 Hammered Dulcimer (SOLD)

This is one of the last dulcimers that Sam built, and it was his go-to instrument for local jams and recordings in the last year of his life. Like all of Sam's instruments, it features the exceptionally warm response characteristic of this all-wood dulcimer. This dulcimer has no back. Sam used it with his table stand for maximum volume.
