Book-matched Dogwood soundboard with Walnut sides and book-matched Walnut back. The pink, tan, and brown colors are rare to find in Dogwood and create beautiful designs. Wood grain may vary slightly from the examples shown.

The Dogwood / Walnut hardwood combination produces a rich, balanced sound, and the walnut fret-board, a trademark of all my dulcimers, is silk smooth, accurately tuned, and a joy to play. Standard 26.5" 16-fret VSL.

Hand-carved, wood-burned, Dogwood blossom sound-holes add to the beauty and performance of the dulcimer, while providing a unique touch. NOTE: You can request a different sound-hole design from the available designs, or provide a design of your own.

My popular "slotted" scroll-head design creates a traditional look, simplifies string replacement, and provides a convenient spot for a clip-on chromatic tuner.

Beautifully made dulcimer! Amazing sound quality! Very Very pleased I purchased a handmade dulcimer from Jack!

My hour-glass dogwood's spalted wood is beautifully marbled and the instrument has a great traditional sound: nice and droney. That hypnotic bass note really pulses through the tunes! I'm so pleased with the professionalism and quality of the shop, and I'm grateful to have a piece of Virginia with me here in California.

Dulcimer arrived well-packed and with all the accessories necessary to hit the ground running playing the dulcimer. It looks and sounds great, an excellent way to represent my Appalachian roots here in Texas.

What a beautiful instrument! Jack was wonderful, throughout the process, keeping me up to date on how things were going. Shipping was quick and the dulcimer itself is even better than I hoped. The sound is mellow and sweet, perfect!

My Virginia Dogwood Mountain Dulcimer with optional electric arrived this morning and is everything I hoped for and more. She sounds great both on an amplifier and "unplugged." She is absolutely gorgeous! The ribbons of wood grain of the dogwood on top are beautiful. I am so pleased and again working with Jack has been gratifying. He is always so helpful in his suggestions and considerate about keeping you posted on the progress. Thanks again to Jack. I heartily recommend his dulcimers.
