This and the Catalpa Virginia Teardrop Dulcimer we also purchased from Jack are both beautiful instruments with a lovely tone, much admired by all who see them. They were both exactly as described and exceeded are expectations.

I love, love, love this dulcimer!!! It is just stunning and sounds so incredibly good! The craftsmanship is just out of this world! Thank you!

Jack does excellent work and completes his dulcimers in a timely fashion. His selection of woods is fantastic. The only regret I have is that I cannot afford another one right now, though his price is more than fair.

As described, beautiful instrument, VERY prompt communication. Sound is fantastic. Nothing but great things to say.

A beautiful instrument in sound, construction, and artistry. Good communication from the seller, and timely shipping (as best can be expected given a major holiday weekend slowing the USPS down).
