Beautiful dulcimer; sounds great! Good price.

Buying a musical instrument sight unseen can seem daunting. In this case, I'm very glad I went ahead. Customizations exactly as requested, great communication through the purchase process, and shipping on time. Fretboard action is super smooth, electronics work flawlessly. The tone of the instrument is sweet, spacey, responsive. I requested a 5 string setup; the "middle" string is actually a bit offset due to the nut and bridge being cut for a 6 string setup -- this plays fine as it turns out, just something to be aware of (or maybe talk to the maker) if you're looking for a 5 string setup. I am very happy with the sound I'm getting from the instrument, very satisfied with the purchase process, and wholly recommend this luthier.
