The Ultralight is a design Russell Cook started in 1983 after watching an older couple attempt to load their large 45 pound hammer dulcimer into the trunk of their automobile. After decades of fine tuning, Master Works has managed to get the weight of this cutting-edge instrument down to approximately 11 pounds!

It is the most instrument for the dollar available on the market. — Russell Cook, Owner Master Works
