#2.026 Quilted Sapele Mahogany Custom Serenade Dulcimer
This Serenade model Tindle Dulcimer features the Custom trim level and is made from some stunning, highly figured Quilted Sapele Mahogany for the top, back and sides, with curly maple bindings and violin purfling on the top. It has a 27" VSL (vibrating string length) and a diatonic fretboard plus the 1.5, 6.5, 8.5, & 13.5 frets.
The Serenade model is a full size mountain dulcimer with a clear, balanced tone. Its refreshing, inspiring voice sings with healthy volume and sweet sustain and does not sound "boxy" or "twangy".
This Custom Serenade includes copper metal powder maple leaf inlays on the fingerboard and headstock.
Black Gotoh tuning machines and strap buttons are included along with a hardshell case. An LR Baggs bridge saddle pickup system with integral end-pin cable jack may be added for $200.

The first 2 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.
