SKU EMSMD5K

This kit includes step by step instructions to make this dulcimer. The Early Music Shop Appalachian dulcimer is more refined than some of the traditional, primitive mountain dulcimers. It is hourglass shaped, has 5 strings and features solid hardwood sides, head and fingerboard. The soundboard is made from solid spruce and it has a lacewood laminated back. 

The Appalachian dulcimer belongs to the psaltery or zither class of musical instrument and has been a folk instrument of the southern Appalachian mountains since the first pioneers settled there. It is a delightful instrument which is often strummed or plucked as an accompaniment to the human voice. In recent years it has evolved into a solo instrument, usually using the fingers, but sometimes bowed. Versatile, simple and easy to play, it is the perfect first instrument for a novice musician.

Mountain Dulcimer Kit

Not yet built but looks to be a solid bit of kit with clear instructions. Delivered in a timely fashion. Hoping to commence the build soon, but with my eyesight, I need longer, brighter days.

Dulcimer kit

Very good kit. Had questions due to to fretboard was supplied finished. Tricky finishing the rest when the neck is complete. Suggestion, brighten up the pics, make larger and include all on one paige. Use the technology available. I'm near the final stage of finishing and things are looking great.
