The Mountain dulcimer, also called Appalachian dulcimer or lap dulcimer, is an historical American instrument that appeared (no one knows who "invented" it) in the mid 1800s in several Appalachian Mountain communities about the same time. Some where box-like with straight sides (Pennsylvania German), some had bowed sides or teardrop shapes (the Virginias, North Carolina), and many took on the familiar hourglass shape (Kentucky, Tennessee). Many other shapes, mimicking similar instruments of European origin, have popped up in areas from Pennsylvania to Alabama.

Pan, the impish Satyr, is a Mountain dulcimer of koa, cherry, pine, maple, and recycled ash. The bridge and nut are ebony. His horns are hand-carved tagua nut (sometimes called vegetable ivory). The hand-carved tuning pegs are kingwood.

Pan is 36" long x 6" wide x 3.25" deep. It has a 27" scale length. The design is based on historic traditional teardrop dulcimer styles of Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina. Comes with a case and noter.
