It seems that as soon as I get caught up on advanced orders more come in so it may be awhile before I have dulcimers on hand ready for sale.
Please feel free to inquire about having me make you a dulcimer. My current time for delivering a dulcimer is about 9 months.
My standard dulcimers feature fine North American tonewoods, binding around the soundboard, high quality tuning machines and a comfortable 25 7/8″ or 27 1/2″ scale length with 19 frets including the 6 1/2 and 13 1/2 frets. Standard models start at $900.
Baritone dulcimers (Can also be built as a long scale instrument in D-A-D or similar tuning) start at $1000.
Combination baritone and standard dulcimers start at $1700.
My dulcimers are covered by a limited lifetime warranty to the original owner.
My goal is to combine the best qualities of traditional dulcimers with modern lutherie to make an instrument that is responsive, expressive and easy to play.
Available options and upgrades include figured wood, additional frets, chromatic dulcimers, other scale lengths, “Galax” backs, internal double-backs, 3, 5 or 6 strings, various types of binding, fingerboards, pickups, etc.
