Hammered Dulcimers - Current Stock

All available finished dulcimers can be seen through the photo galleries below.  Click on the first photo to view full screen. When specifying a particular instrument, don't forget to include the inventory #. There is a separate gallery just for the few used dulcimers I have. Contact me to reserve a dulcimer. I will hold an instrument until I receive a check which is my preferred method of payment.


Below the galleries, there is a list of dulcimers that are nearly done which means I will need to spend some more time to complete the instrument. I often bring instruments to a point and than get other work and won't finish them until somebody actually puts a deposit down. Most of them don't have sound hole designs, so they can be customized. E-mail or call me if you have questions on what you are considering.  I can't provide photos of nearly done instruments (unless it just lacks strings). Don't forget about accessories.

Visiting my shop

You are always welcome to visit my shop to try out any of my instruments. Just call or send an E-mail with a date and time you'd like to stop by. Evenings and weekends are possible but obviously need to be scheduled. I do have a small showroom and try to keep the instruments tuned and ready. It helps to specify the type and size instrument you are interested in prior to your visit. 

Custom Orders

If you don't see something here that fits your needs please contact me for a custom order. Make sure you visit my Custom Design Page to get help making selections. The price is usually the same. The only difference is you will have to wait a little longer as I'll need to start from scratch.
