Barbara Allen™ Dulcimers
Barbara Allen™ dulcimers are my version of a
traditional teardrop dulcimer. As with the other dulcimers I build they
have a deeper body for better volume, resonance and sustain and a better balance
between treble, mid-range and bass frequencies. For custom
orders Barbara Allen™ dulcimers can be
made with any combination of wood and soundholes.
Base Price: $299 Plus $25 shipping
Every Barbara Allen™ dulcimer features:
- Sixteen nickel silver frets with 6½ and 13½ frets included - full two octave range.
- Grover Sta-Tite tuners with a 14:1 gear ratio and lifetime manufacturer's warranty.
- Abalone or Mother of Pearl inlaid position markers.
