Dulcimer Customization Options
The shape and the woods of each Model Dulcimer (i.e. Spruce with Mahogany or Walnut, Cedar with Cherry) are combinations that I like, however you can request whatever combo you want. Take a look below at the options and let me know what you want or ask if you have questions. To learn more about the wood differences, visit our About page.
SOUND HOLE DESIGN
SOUND BOARD WOOD (Top Wood)
Softwoods like Spruce and Cedar are the traditional soundboard (top) woods. However many old time dulcimer builders used the same wood for the top as for the sides and back, another option for you.
Standard back style is one piece but can be ordered as a two piece back (book matched). Images below are samples. How it looks will depend on the wood for your chosen model.
