Dulcimer # 186 – $1200 (Sold)
Three string dulcimer with a spruce soundboard, walnut back, sides, and peghead, curly walnut fingerboard, and lacewood (sometimes called snakewood) binding around the soundboard, 25 7/8″ scale length including 1 1/2, 6 1/2, and 13 1/2 frets, and black Gotoh tuners. This dulcimer has a warm, clear sound with rich midrange, set up to play easily and accurately in D-A-D, but can be set up for other tunings on request.
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 quartersawn 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 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.
If ordering one of my dulcimers and having it shipped, you can try it for three days to make sure you like it and have the option to return it for a full refund minus shipping costs. (I haven’t had one come back yet!)
You can see frequent photos of dulcimers in progress on Instagram.
