Professional quality Tear-Drop Mountain Dulcimer - with Custom Soft-case, and Complete Accessory Kit. Add Electric for an additional $40.

Select from the (5) different wood types available. Comes standard with my Dogwood Blossom sound-hole design, but you can choose from the assortment of other designs I have available. Just add a comment to your order specifying the wood type and sound-hole preference.

Sound sample:

Book-matched Dogwood soundboard with Walnut sides and book-matched Walnut back. The pink and tan colors are rare to find in Dogwood and create a beautiful design. The dulcimers shown are samples of the wood used to build my Dogwood Dulcimers.

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 includes the 6 1/2 fret (13 1/2 available on request).

My trademark Dulcimer Blossom sound-holes add to the beauty and performance of the instrument. Popular slotted scroll-head simplifies string replacement and provides a convenient spot for clip-on chromatic tuners.

Now available with Optional 2-band On-board Electric for added functionality, and great sound.
