Finished and Kit 5 string Appalachian Dulcimer

 

The Appalachian Dulcimer belongs to the psaltery or zither class of instruments and has been a popular folk instrument of the Appalachian mountain area of America since the first pioneers settled there.

Its popularity lays in its simplicity in playing and its versatility in tuning to different modes. [more about the Appalachian Dulcimers]

Finished and Kit 5 string Appalachian Dulcimer

 

RWC Hammered Dulcimer
Our Appalachian Dulcimers are available in two qualities.

The 5 string hourglass Appalachian Dulcimer is a traditional hourglass shape instrument with 5 strings tuned as two pairs and a single. We use figured English sycamore for the back and ribs, Swiss pine for the soundboard and plain sycamore for the fingerboard which is fretted by CNC machine for accuracy.

Hand made in our own workshops, the Appalachian Dulcimer comes with a 12 months guarantee and free access to our 'Helpline'. A soft or a hard carrying case is available as an optional extra.

The 4 string hourglass Appalachian Dulcimer belongs to a series of instruments which have been designed for practicality and economy. The materials are chosen for their tonal qualities (English sycamore, beech or laminated birch).
This 4 string Dulcimer is tuned as a pair and two single courses.

Each instrument is hand built to special order in our own workshops in Toledo (Spain) and comes with 12 months warranty.

A soft padded bag or fitted hard case are available as optional extras if required.
