#2.013 Rosewood/Spruce Serenade Dulcimer
The Serenade model is a full sized mountain dulcimer that expresses a bright clear voice, with healthy volume and sustain. This specific dulcimer is made from Bolivian Rosewood (commonly called Morado) for the back and sides, and Sitka Spruce for the top. Bindings are Hawaiian Koa with black/white/black purfling on the top.
It features a comfortable 27" scale length and functions equally well in the 3-string or 4-string arrangement. It includes the traditional diatonic frets plus the 1-1/2, 6-1/2, and 13-1/2 frets. Strap buttons and a hardshell case are also included, as well as an LR Baggs bridge saddle pickup system with integral end-pin cable jack installed.
The videos below are short audio samples of this specific dulcimer. Nothing can replace in-person playing and listening, but hopefully these samples will give you a good idea of this dulcimer’s particular voice.
We used one studio quality microphone directly above the dulcimer in roughly the same position as the player’s ears. The recording was done in a quiet, non-reverberant room, and no signal processing was performed on the resulting audio file.
