My goal as a dulcimer maker is to combine the best qualities of traditional dulcimers with classic lutherie to build dulcimers that are responsive, expressive and easy to play.
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 1 1/2, 6 1/2 and 13 1/2 frets. Additional frets, particular frets left out, and fully chromatic fingerboards are available options.
Standard models start at $1200.
Baritone dulcimers (Can also be built as a long scale instrument in D-A-D or similar tuning) start at $1300.
My instruments have a limited lifetime warranty to the original owner.
I currently am catching up on making bespoke dulcimers. Please inquire if you are interested in having me make you a dulcimer.
When I have dulcimers for sale they will be shown here.
You can see frequent photos of dulcimers in progress on Instagram.
