The skeleton has been in production for 8 years now. It's a Hammered Dulcimer with an unique backless design, that has turned out to work rather better than was anticipated. Constructed from Birch, Ash, Beech and Maple. The 12+12 layout is can be looked at in two ways either a standard UK layout or standard US layout with an extra tunable low note D up to G. the bass bridge is played from both sides. The right being two octaves higher giving an extended range of notes.
The soundhole surround design has been copied from traditional East Anglian instruments. The instrument on the right has a few special details from the standard instrument, but that sound hole design (no actual holes) is the current style. This is a different soundhole design to the standard instruments, Harmony, Maestro, etc.
The instrument is lightweight with an oiled finish. Supplied together with a Polyester padded gig bag and a nifty folding stand avaliable either as standing or sitting.
