Awesome! Beautiful and well crafted. I absolutely love the dulcimer! Thank you!!❤️❤️

Amazing beautiful a work of art

This instrument is beautiful and has been made by a wonderful craftsman, John Ferguson. The finish is excellent and there are no blemishes. The electric option certainly enhances the flexibility of the dulcimer. Congratulations, John. Your care for all the traditional values of a good craftsman is certainly admired.

My new dulcimer and capo have just been delivered to France, in due time and with no damage, thanks to an efficient packaging. The dulcimer is wonderful and the sound is warm, soft and pleasant. Dogwood is really an original and interesting resonance wood. The look is fantastic, with the dogwood blossom-shaped sound holes, and the bookmatched walnut back, and it is really a pleasure to play. Mr. Ferguson is a very skilful intrument maker and a reliable seller. I warmly recommend his workshop.

The dulcimer is beautiful! The sound is bright and it is so easy to play. I am very happy and would not hesitate to recommend Jack if you are looking for a new instrument.
