Dulcimers

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.

My instruments have a limited lifetime warranty to the original owner.

My goal is to combine the best qualities of traditional dulcimers with classic lutherie to make an instrument that is responsive, expressive and easy to play.

I am catching up on orders and should have dulcimers for sale listed here in a month or so.
