| ||FolkRoots Travel Dulcimer, Honduras Mahogany Body, Honduras Mahogany Soundboard, 22 Inch Scale Length|
The FolkRoots Travel Dulcimer is both new and old. This instrument is a 2011 redesign of the classic 1980s instrument, originally made in Felton, California.
Now made in the Folkcraft shop in Woodburn, Indiana, this instrument has a 22 inch scale, and is made entirely of Honduras mahogany. Honduras mahogany is a wood that is both light (the entire instrument weights only 1 1/2 pounds) and loud (kind of like a cross between cherry and Sitka spruce).
Available in three configurations (standard, standard plus 1 1/2 and 8 1/2 frets, and fully chromatic), this instrument is a real crowd pleaser.
For added volume and versatility, try one of our (also Honduras mahogany) possum boards with this instrument!
