Student model mountain dulcimer, also known as a lap, city, or Appalachian dulcimer. This a stock model with the standard three strings. The Student model is the teardrop shape, with the body constructed of a wonderfully tonal plywood. (I sell other, more expensive models of solid wood. Click "Custom Order" button, if interested). Hardwood components are up-cycled pieces from cabinet/chair manufacturing. Here you get a completely assembled, ready-to-play, wooden dulcimer for a very reasonable price.

NOTE: Actual fretboard/headstock style may vary from that of photo.

Top ---------------------- Meranti Plywood
