Hammered Dulcimer

My hammered dulcimer is finally complete! Well… almost. There’s a few more things that need to be done, including replacing the bass bridge, finishing the very rough hammers, and learning how to play it.

I’ve posted some pictures at my Dulcimer gallery. Specifically, a full pictures of the finished product, a view from the players angle (notice the rough hammers), and two closeups.

This dulcimer has taken on a life of its own. Just like a child takes 9 months to grow in the womb, and then has a lifetime of learning ahead of him/her, this dulcimer took 9 months to build. Anyone who’s heard me hack away on it will agree that I’ve got a lifetime of learning ahead of me. 🙂
