$800 and worth every penny
… but we’re negotiable. GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFT!
Hammered dulcimer made by (Jim?) London from Nebraska, purchased by a friend for his wife’s Christmas gift in the 1980s. She played for several years but maintained it so well that there are only a few tiny scratches. Once she no longer played, she loosened the strings a little bit as she was advised, so it is not in tune. If it makes any difference to you, we will tune it before shipping but you need to ask. Four strings per course, rich, sweet tone. The dulcimer is built solidly but we find the weight to be manageable … and one of us is not that muscular! Dimensions: 24″ across at the top; 41″ across at the bottom. Height is 21″; 4″ from the back to the front, counting the tuning pegs. The sound “hole” is actually an opening across the top. Pick up in St. Louis or buyer pays for UPS packing and shipping (cost can be sent to you if you send us your zip code). Within 100 mi. of St. Louis, we’ll meet you half way.
