I take pride in everything I make and get satisfaction in providing something of value to all my customers.

My dulcimer is absolutely beautiful. In addition to a quality instrument it is a work of art. The sound is fantastic, but the true value of Jack’s dulcimers is the fret board. The strings are sitting perfectly so playing is very easy. The acoustic sound is fabulous, but I am having so much fun with plugging it into an amp with some fun settings. You can spend a lot more money, but you will not be able to buy a better instrument.

My second dulcimer from Jack. Beautiful heirloom quality instruments. Great craftsmanship. No problems with shipping or discussing options via email/text. Deciding on the combination of available woods is the hardest part.

I purchased a red cedar over walnut w/elect. , and I’m so proud of this instrument. Jack Ferguson makes magnificent sounding dulcimers, and you can see just from looking up close that it’s high quality and well made. The time frame and shipping all went well. Thanks Jack

Absolutely amazing craftsmanship. Sound is everything I would desire in a Mountain Dulcimer and the instrument is absolutely beautiful to look at. It is a treasured addition to my travel instruments. Thank you, Jack, for your art in building such fine instruments.

Beautifully crafted instrument with a rich, warm tone. This is my second dulcimer by Jack Ferguson. Love them!
