Cherry has always been a favorite choice for acoustic instruments for its stability and sound qualities. Each dulcimer is book-matched, front and back, to optimize the grain patterns and beauty.

The fret-boards, a trademark of all my dulcimers, are silk smooth, accurately tuned, and a joy to play. Comes with the standard 26.5" (16-fret) VSL. It is strung with standard gauge strings, .012 (2), .014, and .024 allowing it to be tuned to the popular tuning modes, DAD, DAA, and DAC.

My slotted scroll-head design simplifies string replacement and provides a convenient spot for attaching a chromatic tuner.

Sample electric:

- Strung with top-quality D'Addario strings (.012, .012, .014, .024)
- All solid wood, no veneer.
- Overall length=33", width=7 1/4", height =3 1/2"
- Quality open-gear chrome/brass tuning machines
- Hardwood fret-board, width 1 3/8", height 3/4", with 6.5 and 13.5 half frets
- Professional Finish
- Individually numbered and autographed

Comes with Accessory Kit containing Oak noter, pick, and users guide that contains instructions and easy to learn popular songs in tablature. Also comes with chrome strap buttons mounted at the head and foot, and 4.5 oz. bottle of Howard Beeswax-Orange Oil to protect your Dulcimer for years to come.

I received a custom made cherry dulcimer from Jack. The instrument is beautiful and he was good with communication and made custom design on the sound holes for me. I got one with electric plug in and it sounds beautiful!

Received the Dulcimer last Friday, I let it get use to the climate change (as I am in California). Adjusted the tuning to DAD, plugged it into my Roland amp. it sounded BEAUTIFUL! The workman ship is one of the best that I have seen. This is the third item that I have purchased from Jack.
