Large
Hourglass

These models are all high performance dulcimers.
The one shown here is a 4-string Kentucky hourglass with Honduras Mahogany sides, back, and fingerboard and a beautiful quartersawn, very tight-grained Sitka Spruce top.
The Baritone version is a 4-string which is strung heavier --to tune a 4th lower than normal (A-E-A).
Other woods are available.

$1200 to $1650
