14/13/8 Sparrow Chromatic Hammered Dulcimer
The new Sparrow Chromatic is the smallest and lightest member of our Multiple Section Soundboard solid top hammered dulcimers. The Sparrow’s top is solid African Mahogany and is composed of 6 individual boards connected together with tight fitting tongue and groove joints which are not glued. This allows the wood to shrink and swell as it needs to with changes in humidity but still act acoustically as one board. Works just great and makes a much happier, more stable dulcimer. No need to worry about it when conditions change. Take it to Death Valley? Fine. Trip to the Amazon? Ditto. This is the most reliable small dulcimer built.
Weighs about 12 pounds, and is fully chromatic over 2 1/2 octaves with a total 3 1/2 octave range. 38” long and 15 3/4” wide. Top is African Mahogany, back is laminated Birch for strength, sides are Hard Maple, the bindings are Curly Maple, and the bridges are Walnut.

Availability: We are a small Mom and Pop enterprise, and can't have everything we make in stock all the time. If you have a deadline, please contact us for availability of what you are thinking of getting before placing the order.
Shipping Info: A shipping calculator with all the functionality would cost us big money, so we opted to use the basic and reliable Paypal checkout system and include a reasonable average shipping cost on the price of each item. This year it is $35 for dulcimers or complete packages. If you order multiple items, we will refund the extra via Paypal.
Payment Info: We believe PayPal is the safest online option for payments. You don't need a PayPal account to use our checkout system. Of course, we still like checks best since they don't cost us money to process! If you want to send us one in the mail, we would greatly appreciate it! Just don't use the shopping cart, and contact us directly with your order, and we'll work out the total and details.
