I am currently recovering from back surgery and doing well. I should be back in the shop and gently starting to make dulcimers again near the end of August or early September. Dulcimers will be posted here as they become available.
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.
