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.
One of these days I'll be good enough to justify a wood dulcimer, but for learning chromatic technique this cardboard dulcimer is just fine. It went together in a few hours, and actually has a pretty good tone.
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!
I bought this because I thought my grandson would love to build it and learn to play while on spring break. He really enjoyed building it and had even more fun learning to play. He played with my club at the end of the week. The cardboard kit was a great experience and I cant wait to do it with my other grandkids.
