This Sonata (baritone) model Tindle Dulcimer features the Essential trim level and is made from mahogany (sapele) for the top, back, and sides. It has a 27" VSL (vibrating string length) and diatonic fretboard plus the 1.5, 6.5, 8.5, and 13.5 frets. 

The Sonata model is much like the Serenade, but with a slightly deeper body that favors its lower voice as a baritone (commonly tuned A-E-aa). It has a rich, full tone with great sustain that does not sound “boxy” or “twangy”.

Strap buttons and a hardshell case are included. An LR Baggs bridge saddle pickup system with integral end-pin cable jack may be installed for an additional $200.

Audio Samples

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.
