17/16/8 Finch Chromatic Pro Hammered Dulcimer


The Finch Chromatic Pro is absolutely a top of the line hammered dulcimer, as good or better than anything else built.  It is the flagship of our Multiple Section Soundboard solid top hammered dulcimer models.  The top consists of 7 individual boards connected by tight fitting tongue and groove joints which are not glued.  This allows the wood to shrink or swell as needed with changes in humidity and makes for a much happier, more stable instrument.  All the sound holes are in the back on these dulcimers, there are 6 all together.  Cutting a hole in the top would sacrifice the strength of the joints.
 
The top of the Finch Chromatic Pro is solid Genuine Mahogany (not Sapele) which is wonderful stuff!  It makes for a sound that is big, rich and open.  There are other mahoganies used by other builders as a substitute, but they are not the same or as good as Genuine Mahogany. 
 
The sides of the Finch Chromatic Pro are Curly Maple.  The bindings are Wenge, a dark, almost purple wood from Africa, and the bridges are made to match.  There is a 3 layer purling line around the inside of the bindings to help frame the lovely mahogany top.  Overall color scheme is a harmonious red.  The top will eventually darken to a rich dark red.  The back is laminated Birch for strength.
 
Not only is this dulcimer beautiful, it is also durable.  Take it anywhere and don’t worry about it.  It will probably still be in tune when you get there.  Dry conditions?  No problem.  Serious humidity?  Takes it in stride.  No having to keep your dulcimer humidified in winter, or struggle with wild swings of tuning as weather changes.  Remarkably stable!  Also fairly light at 16 pounds.  42” long by 19 inches wide.  Fully Chromatic over 3 octaves, and more than a 4 octave range.  You really don’t need a larger dulcimer than this.  If you want to get yourself that friend for life, this is it.
 
We have been experimenting with the Super Bass bridge on the right, and can now do it.  If you are interested in that, contact us, it’ll be a little extra.

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.
