Item number 7112361,
Here's everything you need to build your own mountain dulcimer (everything except the wood parts!) all in one easy-to-buy kit. We've put together a package that includes a set of four tuning machines (tuning gears) enough fret wire for a complete instrument, a set of anchor pins to hold the strings, a set of strings, and two pieces of bridge/nut stock. Making your own dulcimer is satisfying, relaxing, and rewarding, and with our hardware package, you don't have any reason to delay getting started!
We would recommend the open-gear tuners for use with a scroll head dulcimer, and the closed-gear tuners for use with a flat head dulcimer. The anchor pins we include with our hardware kits are perfect for use with ball end strings, but you can choose loop end (they sound the same!) if that's what you prefer.
The photograph we show here shows our bone-colored tuners and ball-end strings. We'll be sure to ship whatever tuners, nuts/bridges, and strings that you choose. If you add the dulcimer case to your order, we'll include our best soft case, item number 2851910 (the same made-in-the-USA case we include with the instruments we build here in the Folkcraft shop).
I liked that I could choose what I wanted in my hardware kit.
