The Style II dulcimer was designed to satisfy the most demanding players and is our most popular model. It is preferred by professional musicians for its excellent tone, sustain and balance throughout the entire range of the instrument. We use the most select woods for every part of the instrument and combine them to produce an elegant dulcimer unequaled in tone, performance and appearance.

The different wood options have a slight effect on the overall tone of the instrument. Click here to go to our FAQ page for more information.

We enjoy personalizing an instrument to order, and are always happy to discuss individual options and designs with you. Over the years we have created many unique instruments, most based on the Style II shape, and variations in woods, features and fret patterns are easily accommodated.
