15/14 FRED MONTAGUE HAMMERED DULCIMER
Location: HULL

[Accesories Image] [Accesories Image] [HD Image]



This Amazing Hammer Dulcimer made by Fred Montague of Massachusetts is for sale. Some of you may recognise the instrument as being very similar to the one Jim Couza played (it's the same maker). It is a fantastic dulcimer with incredible tone and a joy to play. I am asking for 1,000 ono for it as when I purchased it I had to import it from America it is a 15/14 model.

Included: A set of sticks and a tuning wrench.
Price: 1,000 ONO

If you are interested in purchasing the instrument contact Quentin Budworth or Tel 07877 434739

Completely Reconditioned OAKWOOD HAMMERED DULCIMER


Inherited from my sister, this is a very early Oakwood, reconditioned by them. Their words were (I paraphrase) "Ooh! This is an early one." There is no carrying case. I am based in Kent and would ideally like it to be collected, but the buyer and I will need to discuss handover.

Price 400 ONO.

FOR SALE
A SALTERIO BY KLEMENS KLEITSCH

Location: TAUNTON, SOMERSET

This is a chromatic salterio in pretty much 'as new' condition, built by Klemens Kleitsch (His instruments are played by many professional players including Birgit Stolzenburg, Carmen Amrein and Rudi Zapf).

The instrument is currently tuned to play at the baroque pitch of A415 Hz but can be tuned to A440 concert pitch. It has a cedar soundboard and a spruce back which contribute to a rich, sparkling sound that can be both extremely delicate and powerful. The strings are a mixture of gauges and materials including yellow brass, red brass and English Iron. The hammers are specific to this type of instrument. The tuning layout is fairly straightforward and intuitive.

It has a hard case and comes with six pairs of hammers of different woods and weights including a pair with leather padding (extra leather is also supplied). There is also a lifetime's worth of spare strings of all types, both loose (in small bags) and on large rolls supplied by English harpsichord maker Malcolm Rose. A small tuning wrench is included.

The new price of this instrument would be in excess of 2500 euros. The hammers were roughly 90 a pair and the spare strings cost about 200.

Price: 1500

OAKWOOD 2/14/13 CONCERT HAMMERED DULCIMER

Location: TAUNTON, SOMERSET

This was bought as a spare and has hardly been used so is in nearly new condition. It has a great sound and is in a standard tuning with some extra chromatic notes at the tops of the bridges to increase the range.

[HD Image] [HD Image] [HD Image] The wood is English cherry and the lid is a special lightweight version to cut back on the overall carrying weight. It has some extra rubber feet on the short end for protection when standing it on the ground. The black soundboard has a decorative inlay strip around the edge.

It comes with a custom made carrying case and a set of new hammers but I'm running short of tuning wrenches so if you have your own that would be great, otherwise let me know and I'll find one!

Price: 1300
