So happy to receive this custom dulcimer with chromatic fretboard and a built-in pick up. I don't have an amp so I haven't tried the pick up yet, but even without an amp, the sound carries well. I am really enjoying the touch and playability of this dulcimer. The tone is wonderful - it just rings on and on and on. And the chromatic fretboard is helping me learn music and I'm able to play more keys and songs (so much easier on 3 strings than on a guitar!). I am also really pleased with the beauty of the sound hole I picked (dragonfly).
I am thoroughly happy with this beautiful dulcimer. It was worth waiting for one customized just for me. Looking forward to trying out the pick up.
This dulcimer is absolutely stunning,with a sound to go with it. It has a beautiful rich tone and stays in tune. Very pleased. Can't wait to purchase my next one!!!
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the wood choices, but when it arrived I was stunned at the Incredible workmanship and beauty! I play piano, clarinet, and ukulele, but new to the dulcimer, and feel that is very, very good.
I'm totally happy with my new chromatic mountain dulcimer. It looks and sounds awesome! Richard was a delight to work with and incredibly patient with all of my questions.
Very accommodating craftsmen. Nothing is too much trouble for Richard, the owner, and the finished product is superb in terms of build and tone. I will not be using anyone else in future
