I made this without any skills at all. I took my time and it came out very very nice. I would recommend this to anyone. The sound of the dulcimer is very nice too. A fun project and and beautiful instrument!
Pretty easy to build, excellent written instructions. The estimate of 2 hours to build is a little sporty - it took me about 4 hours over a few days. All in all a nice starter instrument.
I built my first dulcimer from scratch. I bought the one to use everyday and not have to use my hand built one. It was very easy to assemble and has a very nice tone.
I wanted a dulcimer that I can take on a small regional plane and not worry if it got banged up so I ordered this kit. Super easy to build, stays tuned!, and sounds mellow. I’m happy with my choice.
This kit is an inexpensive and good way to see if you can get the hang of the dulcimer. It has great instructions and was easy to assemble. I fell in love with this instrument and just placed an order for a custom dulcimer!
