'Table - Top' Dulcimer 9 + 9




Table Top pro model 9 + 9 Hammer Dulcimer made in the UK by top maker Tim Manning using European species timber

This is an 18 course instrument of a size and range closer in style to the Renaissance Dulcimers and Iranian Santur. It has a good volume for its size. The 2011 instrument now comes with colour coded Delrin bridge tops.

Despite this being a small instrument it is still capable of some incredible music.

Drummers in particular often instantly bond with dulcimers

A handle cut into the back allows for easy manouvering
