My daughter was interested in a dulcimer and she was so happy when she found out that she could customize it with the type of wood and the shape of the cut-outs. It turned out simply beautiful. Like it should be hung on the wall when it's not being played. The sound is lovely, even though she doesn't know how to play a song on it yet. We are very happy with our purchase and impressed with the workmanship.

Jack was WONDERFUL to work with - very communicative and helpful. The dulcimer came in a little sooner than originally promised. It is beautiful!!! It was well packaged and the case/accessories that came with it are very nice. I can't wait to start learning to play!!!

Thid is a beautiful dulcimer

il est superbe j' adore

The dulcimer Jack made for me was very nicely crafted, and a really great deal for the price. He checked with me to make sure of what wood, sound-hole design, and finish I wanted, before building my dulcimer. And Jack was very responsive to all of my questions along the way. Everything that was listed as being included in the Accessory Kit was delivered. The case is nicer than I expected; well-made, and attractive. Same can be said for the capo, which works well. I haven't looked over the included "First Lessons Dulcimer" book with CD set yet, but I know Mel Bay is a respected author and instructor, so I will get to it. For now, I am too busy playing my dulcimer. I recommend Jack's dulcimers, and would buy from him again.
