This 16/15 hammered dulcimer is built with laminated Finland birch soundboard and back. Exceptionally sturdy and stable, it offers a sweet, balanced sound over its three octave range. Extending the standard 2½ octave range downward, this instrument opens up a wider choice of playing keys and affords greater versatility in arranging melodies and harmonies.
The Overture is available with a striking black finish instead of the standard clear lacquer.
The Overture is a three octave dulcimer; the lowest note is the D below middle C. There are 16 courses of strings on the treble bridge and 15 courses on the bass bridge. This configuration is often referred to as "16/15". Easily available keys are G, D, C, F and A, along with their relative minors. There are a variety of chromatic notes available in each key.
