Ask a question

The Box Dulcimer, or Tennessee Music Box, is an easy to play relative of the Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer. While the fret scale is very similar, the sound chamber is rectangular rather than the eliptical, tear-drop, or hour-glass found with the dulcimer. The tuning modes are the same, and the playing styles similar, with the noter more often used.

This Box Dulcimer is a quality stringed instrument, accuratelly tuned and scaled with a 26.5" Variable String Length. It has 16 frets (including 0, 6.5), four (4) strings, and overall dimensions of 4" x 6" x 30". Zither tuning pins provide accurate, stable tuning in a more traditional style.

Construction:
> The box is made of 5/16" Poplar, and the fret-board black walnut.
> Also now available with Cherry or Sycamore (select wood type in the drop-down box)
> The fret-board is 1 3/8" wide, 3/4" tall, and 29" long, and the tuning blocks are hard maple.
> A 1/2" dip strum hollow is also included.
> The 4 strings are D'Addario J64, .012(2), .014, .022.
> Back corner feet for table-top playing.

A unique design of this instrument is the hollow fret-board with sound-holes through the sound-board, and at the place-markers. This added feature enhances the sound quality and reduces the overall weight.

Accessory Kit includes Zither Tuning Wrench, Oak Noter, pick, and Users Guide with playing instructions and a number of easy to learn tab songs.
