Master Works Ultralight


For all level hammered dulcimer players, this 16/15 performance-quality hammer dulcimer should be the minimum size dulcimer to play. For those who need the lightest weight possible yet full-size dulcimer, it only weighs 11 pounds!

Includes a Sipo soundboard, Morado bridges, Maple pinblocks, and Cherry or Walnut endrails.


The Ultralight includes these features: 

Choice tapered soundboard to improve vibration and response as well as reduce weight 
Precisely designed pinblocks to reduce weight 
Solid Alder back to improve sound quality and reduce weight 
Wound strings on lower courses 

Available in Three Configurations:

- Ultralight
16 treble and 15 bass courses. 

- Ultralight Chromatic
5 additional notes make this dulcimer fully chromatic from bottom to top. 

- Ultralight Chromatic Extended Range (XR)
The extended range option adds an entire octave to the bottom range of the Ultralight Chromatic. 

For custom orders, these upgrades are available: 

Exotic wood endrails 
Stained soundboard

The Ultralight comes standard with a natural finish but can be upgraded to a stained soundboard.
