Dulcimer Model Comparison

This chart allows you to compare specifications for our different hammered dulcimers. If there are models you're not interested in, clicking on the minus sign to the left of the model name will minimize that line (and clicking on the plus sign will bring it back). The base price refers to the price of the dulcimer by itself, with no case or options. The exception is the Apprentice, which is only available as a package with a case and playing legs.

If you are looking for a more narrative guide to the differences between models, try our Dulcimer Finder or our PDF guide to choosing a hammered dulcimer.
