If you are not familiar with this instrument, a hammered dulcimer is a multi-course stringed instrument that is played by striking the strings with a pair of special mallets called hammers.

Dusty Strings has been building and selling hammered dulcimers as far back as 1978 and then added their harps into production starting around 1980. CLICK ME to read more about the history of Dusty Strings.
