Example of a 3/13/12 Custom Hammered Dulcimer
The instrument below is meant to give you an idea of some of the possible combinations of woods. The selected woods could be used on any of my hammered dulcimer models, Linear Chromatics or Tsimbls.
This 3/13/12 Custom the next smallest and lightest instrument I make (the 9/9 Custom being the smallest). This instrument is the top end of my 3/16/18/9. It doesn't have the bottom end the larger instruments possess so there are sacrifices in tone. The string spacing is 7/8"

This instrument has a Cherry frame with matching bridges, a natural Redwood soundboard, Lacewood pin panels and Curly Maple trim.
