My Extended Range™ dulcimers are very unique. They combine a baritone dulcimer with a regular dulcimer to produce a dulcimer with a greatly extended range on the bass side.  This not only offers a lot of possibilities for experimentation but also adds a lot of volume and a much fuller sound.  The fretboard is also wider than normal - 50mm or about two inches.  This dulcimer is meant for an experienced player and I would not recommend it to someone new to the dulcinmer or stringed instruments in general.
This dulcimer has a bookmatched Cherry top, with bookmatched Walnut back and sides. The layered Walunut/Cherry fretboard has 18 nickel silver frets (including a 1½, 6½, 8½ and 13½ frets) with a full two octave range and Mother-of-Pearl position markers . The action is set to the traditional dime under the 1st fret and nickel under the 7th fret height for easy playability and it has a big sound that reminds me of a growling wildcat. As always, Grover 14:1 gear ratio Sta-Tite tuning keys provide quick, precise tuning with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty. Very nice dulcimer for someone wanting to expand their playing.

The Juniper top on this dulcimer has a very distinctive coloration that reminds me of flames coming up from the bottom of the dulcimer with the cream color above looking like smoke. I am always extremely happy to find these types of natural colorations and usually try to hold them for deluxe style dulcimers such as this.
The sides and back are bookmatched Walnut and the layered fretboard 16 nickel silver frets (including a 6½ and 13½ frets) with Mother of Pearl position markers. The gold Grover tuners are matched with gold hardware for the internal pickup and strap buttons.
This dulcimer has a nice, full sound.

This all Pennsylvania Cherry dulcimer already has the antique golden-reddish-brown coloring that is inherent in Cherry dulcimers. The volume is great and unlike many dulcimers, you can hear the bass and mids loud and clear and not just the high "twangy" tones.  The string action is set to the traditional dime under the 1st fret and nickel under the 7th fret height. It includes 16 nickel silver frets, Mother-of-Pearl inlays and Grover Sta-tite tuners. This is a very nice dulcimer that would be great for a beginner who wants to learn on a good quality instrument without having to step up to a better dulcimer later or for an experienced player wanting a quality dulcimer at an excellent price.

This dulcimer has a nice "woody" tone with good balance. The bookmatched top wood has been in my shop for about 17 years and I am not positive what it is but I think it is Hickory. But regardless of what name you bestow on it the important thing is sound and appearance.
The fretboard is Walnut with 16 nickel silver frets including 6½ and 13½ and Mother of Pearl inlays and full two octave range.  The back and sides are also bookmatched Walnut. As usual, Grover sta-tite tuners with a lifetime warranty and string height set to the traditional dime under the 1st fret (actually slightly lower) and nickel under the 7th fret. Nice dulcimer at a great price.

I really like this dulcimer. Not only does it look great but it has fantastic sustain and just a very nice, clear and balanced tone. The string action is set to the traditional dime under the 1st fret and nickel under the 7th fret height and it has a great feel and at least for me, perfect action.  The top is Juniper and the body Curly Maple. As always, 16 nickel silver frets, colorful Abalone fretboard inlays in the fretboard and gold Grover Sta-tite tuners with matching strap buttons already installed. If you want a great dulcimer that is suitable for everyone from beginner to experienced player I sincerely don't think you will find  a better one than this in this price range - just a really nice all around dulcimer.

I'm not sure if the bookmatched Curly Maple top on this dulcimer is spalted, but it certainly has a lot of nice coloration.  It is paired with a bookmatched back and sides of Cherry.  The fretboard and scroll are layered with Cherry and Walnut, which really helps bring out the brown coloration in the top. As always, 16 nickel silver frets (including a 6½, and 13½ frets) with a full two octave range and Mother-of-Pearl position markers.  This dulcimer also features an internal pickup for plugging directly into an amplifier, soundboard or effects pedal. All the hardware is gold including the input jack, strap button and Grover Sta-tite tuners. Low string action makes this dulcimer very easy to play. Very nice dulcimer.
