Dulcimers I have available ready to ship are listed on this page. You can also see instruments of mine available through Elderly Instruments.
(No dulcimers at Elderly at the moment but more coming soon)
I often have several dulcimers that are not listed or are near completion. Please inquire.
I want you to be happy with your dulcimer so I ship in-stock dulcimers with a 3 day approval period. You may return the dulcimer within 3 days and receive a refund.
My standard dulcimers feature fine North American tonewoods, high quality tuning machines and a comfortable 25 7/8″ scale length with 19 frets including the 6 1/2 and 13 1/2 frets. Standard models start at $700. Baritone dulcimers start at $800. Combination baritone and standard dulcimers start at $1500.
My current turnaround time for advance and custom orders is about 4 months.
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, 3, 5 or 6 strings, pickups, etc. Ask about having a custom-made dulcimer.
