This instrument represents the evolution of the first dulcimers I built in 1968. Over the years it developed a hollowed out neck, interior bracing and a deep strum hollow. It's design has matured much like a good wine, producing a highly responsive instrument that has a wide sound range. The peg head is hand chiseled. The solid sides are steam bent.
The A Series features Cedar top & book-matched black walnut back, Carved scroll, High quality geared tuning pegs, a 6½ fret, and Fret position markers.
A-1, Standard $1266
A-2, Standard with Pickup $ 1581*
A-3, Traditional $ 1266**
A-4, Traditional with Pickup $ 1581**

* All electrified models have a built-in pre-amp for a strong output signal and require a 9-volt battery. A passive pickup without battery is available.
** The Traditional models have 1 1/4" wide neck in stead of an 1 1/2". This is for the benefit of strumming.
