We are proud and honored to be the authorized builders of the Jean Ritchie Dulcimer. It is a traditionally styled Appalachian mountain dulcimer built to Jean's specifications.

It is available in walnut with a Western red cedar top and features the "Hearts-A-Flower" inlay on the fretboard and peghead, designed by Jean.

The design of this instrument tends to produce a more "traditional" sound, but it is well suited to all styles of dulcimer playing.
