Mountain Dulcimer

The Cabin Creek teardrop-shaped Mountain Dulcimer is in the historic Southwestern Virginia style. It is patterned after an historic instrument over 100 years old from this area. The Cabin Creek hourglass model is reminiscent of early mountain dulcimers from Kentucky.

The shapes of both style Mountain Dulcimers are aesthetically beautiful and properly proportioned. Each is made from "scratch". They are not assorted pieces bought from a supplier and put together. Every instrument is made by me, from rough lumber to finished instrument. Each Mountain Dulcimer is crafted with an aesthetically pleasing overhang, like a violin/fiddle and is signed, numbered and dated. Most of the woods used are native to appalachia and harvested from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Included with each instrument:

  • Instruction/ songbook
  • Pick and noter
  • A padded nylon case with accessory pocket and carrying strap

Extra strings and an electronic tuner/pickup are available--see the accessories page
