Virtuoso 15 + 15 + 8





The Virtuoso pro model Hammer Dulcimer 15 treb + 15 bass + 8 wound bass strings made in the UK by top maker Tim Manning using European species timber.

The Virtuoso is slightly larger than the Maestro and adds a set of wound low bass strings. The internal strutting also incorporates composite material struts. The top few courses have three strings per course to increase the volume in the higher register. The bass strings extend the range a further octave below the Maestro and are playable either on the left or right. Wait period about 12 weeks.
