Very excited about the beautiful mountain dulcimer that Jack hand-crafted for me! It's everything I had anticipated and more :) Highly recommend Jack because he is very knowledgable, nice and reliable - he follows through on everything he tells you. What's more, he has a wonderful attitude! Thanks, Jack, for your fabulous work and for making my experience buying a dulcimer such a pleasure!!!

Sent Jack my design and he was able to execute it perfectly! I can't help but rub my fingers across it while I have it out to play. It's simply stunning and more than I ever dreamed I would actually have! He worked with me to make sure everything was done the way I wanted and did exactly what I asked. My dulcimer is beautiful and the sound is majestic! Highly recommend for craftsmanship and affordability.
My business combines my woodworking skills with my love for history, nature, and music.
Appalachian Flutes & Dulcimers first started in 2002 with an interest in preserving woodcraft commonly made and used by the Settlers, and Natives of Colonial America. Our products include Tools, Toys, and Musical Instruments. Flutes and Mountain Dulcimers are our primary Musical Instruments. Each instrument is accurately tuned, and professionally hand-crafted, to provide the very best in playing enjoyment.
Our raw materials are primarily hardwoods found in the Appalachian Region of the United States. We use only salvaged wood. No live trees are ever cut or damaged to meet our needs. Our preferences are Black Cherry, Black Walnut, Dogwood, Curly Maple, Eastern Red Cedar, and Re-claimed American Chestnut.
Our Dulcimers are Hand-made custom instruments uniquely designed to meet the customer's wishes. We create three basic Dulcimer types, 1) Hour-glass, 2) Tear-drop, and 3) The German Style Scheitholt. Each type also has a mid-size model somewhat smaller in design for special playing needs. And lastly, the customer can choose from a variety of wood types, sound-holes, and fret-boards to meet his or her design requirements.
Although each Dulcimer I build is unique, I can model new instruments to match previously built dulcimers. So, if you like one I have Sold, let me know it's number, ex. Cedar110, and I can build it for you.
Thanks for visiting my shop.
