UKs No 1 Hammered Dulcimer Maker Tim Manning

Maestro 15 + 15 Dulcimers


Maestro pro model 15 + 15 Hammered Dulcimer made in the UK by top maker Tim Manning using European species timber

The Maestro is the perfect larger sized (15+15) Hammered Dulcimer. Large and full sounding the Music Magic Maestro model gives a developing performer the best in Dulcimer sound. Smaller Music Magic models such as the Harmony and the Table Top are more manoeuvrable with a fantastic more sharp sound due to the less extreme sonic fingerprint produced from the smaller soundboards. The unique style setting design of the Music Magic range produces extraordinary clarity and quickness of sound.

Uniquely, Music Magic instruments are the first to have featured the ability to play both sides of BOTH bridges. The model is available in two version : Standard and Pro. The Standard is the version that has been in production longest, the Pro version has Maple bound edges, felt covered pin block tops and individually tied strings, which means even if a string breaks you can continue playing! Each Dulcimer is hand crafted by Tim Manning in the UK with no Laser cutters involved anywhere! The great sound of a Music Magic instrument awaits you.
