Why Us?

 I build my dulcimers ,one at a time, to keep the quality high. I use only native Appalachian woods for my dulcimers. I make and supply my own strings. I will work with each customer to provide them with a dulcimer that will be sure to become a family heirloom.  You will have input into the creation of your instrument , like type of wood ,stained , painted,or natural finish. The design of the dulcimer is based on the history of the dulcimer style you chose. All instruments may be fretted in one of three intonations. I use Equal Temperament, Mean Tone, or Just Intonation.this being the most traditional, and sweetest sounding.
