Sorry - This dulcimer is sold!

I usually only make flathead style dulcimers for custom orders. But lately I've been getting increasing demand for these so thought I would build a few for stock. This is a very nice example with a rare bookmatched Birdseye Maple top and bookmatched Walnut back and sides. The layered Walnut fretboard has 16 nickel silver frets (including a 6½, and 13½ frets) with a full two octave range and Mother-of-Pearl position markers . The gold Grover 14:1 gear ratio Sta-Tite tuning keys are set in a headstock with matching Birdseye Maple overlay.  This dulcimer also features an internal piezo pickup with gold hardware, including strap buttons. Very nice dulcimer at an excellent price.

Oak is not commonly used for dulcimer tops. But in this case it produces a rich tone that is very crisp with a lot of overtones. The coloration is a nice golden-tan that matches the Walnut body very well.  Good all around dulcimer - nice tone and great appearance.
