Jack is a wonderful craftsman. My dulcimer arrived in great condition and it’s positively beautiful. I love that I was able to customize with cardinal cutouts. I also was able to message with Jack to add the electric hookup after considering the volume needed for my space. Good things are worth waiting for!

I really like it. I would but the sustain on this dulcimer up against any I have played. Thank you Jack.

Perfectly happy with it: feels good, looks good, has a perfect, warm and rich sound, absolutely on par with way more expensive products on the european market. Would definitely recommend appalachianflutes anytime.

Le dulcimer est en parfait état et d'une présentation soignée ainsi que d'une qualité irréprochable. Les délais de livraison, un peu longs, ne sont pas imputables au fabricant qui fait preuve d'une scrupuleuse conscience professionelle et que je remercie pour sa gentillesse et son savoir faire!

My new dulcimer arrived today and it is BEAUTIFUL - but best of all, it sounds as lovely as it looks! I love, love, love the hummingbird sound-holes and the purpleheart fret-board. If you are thinking of acquiring a new dulcimer, Jack Ferguson is your guy - you will be thrilled! 😀😀😀
