Holy Mother-loving God this is an amazing instrument. I am astounded to the attention to detail and the sound... next level. This was well worth the wait and I am most certainly going to be ordering more instruments from Jack in the future. Genius!!!

Beautifully crafted dulcimer with a lovely rich tone and great sustain. Perfectly set up and easy to play. The detail on the headstock is a nice touch

I received my Dulcimer that Jack made and was delivered to the Uk, this is beautifully made and you can not only tell from the way jack made it but it sounds wonderfully. I would highly recommend Jacks work and he is a true artisan and it really shows in his instruments. I will defiantly buy again
