Hardwood Stick Dulcimers
3 Strings, Sweet Mountain Sound

Box Dulcimers
Offbeat Designs, Dulcimer Experience

This is the traditional folk dulcimer cast in a compact guitar-like format.  Compared to guitars, dulcimers have half the strings and half the frets, so playing is much simpler and more intuitive.  The strings are tuned to create natural harmonies, even played with just one finger.

These instruments offer both eye appeal and instant fun.   They feature the same simplified fingerboard and one-finger notes, but they incorporate recycled and up-cycled materials. This is the perfect introduction to string instruments for any age.
