HackbrettWith special gold leaf soundholes


This is the German style of Dulcimer with a nice Music Magic twist. You can play both sides of both bridges! Just like on my dulcimers.

The layout though is different to the Hammered Dulcimer. You could look at it two way. Either:-

1 Each bridge has a whole tone scale on it . The right bridge is a semi-tone higher than the left, thus achieving a completely chromatic instrument. Or

2 The instrument tuning procedes in semi-tones all the way up the instrument from the bottom to the top alternating left and right.

It has a 4 Octave range. The Lower strings are brass music wire and the higher strings are Roslau music wire.
