Ask a question

New, custom-made, Box Dulcimer, or Tennessee Music Box, is an easy to play relative of the Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer. While the fret scale is the same, 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.

Available options:
- Body wood type (Cherry, Walnut, Poplar)

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 7" x 30". Zither tuning pins provide accurate, stable tuning in a more traditional style.

Body design provides a deep soothing sound.
