These mountain hourglass style Dulcimers are my own design.

 They are made like the acoustic guitars that I build. Made out of all solid woods (no plywood) they have linings and spruce tone bracing. The wood bindings add visual interest as well as providing a way of sealing the end grain of the top & back woods. The inlays are hand cut died veneer (marquetry). The nut & saddle are hand carved white bone. Tuning & stringing are made easy due to the peghead shape and the high ratio sealed tuning machines.  All this results in an instrument with  beautiful tone quality. Shop for them on  my Etsy store.
