These instruments are the result of Rick Thum’s years of experience and performance requirements. He demands a dulcimer of dynamic clarity and power, without the problem of excessive sustain. The “Professional 17/17” produces a strong clear fundamental tone that will be heard over other instruments or in a performance setting.  The experienced player will discover a fast attack, broad dynamic range, and balanced voicing. The new player will notice a clear, beautiful tone and easy playability in a handsome, cleanly designed instrument.
