..and the "Dulcimore"

 

 


 

I didn't know what to call it. I've used girls names, descriptions and now for lack of imagination, the obvious. "Dulcimore"

It is an amalgamation of the "Betty" and the "ultra-lite". I've also decided to abandon the contemporary DAd tuning set up and string selection associated with it. A wonderfully sounding Ionian 1-5-5 tuning is better suited with the bass string being just a few thousands larger than the melody and middle drone to ring proper. With an all Poplar piece it should come in at around a pound! Tuned usually up around Aee it really rings. So:

26 inch VSL

4 1/4 inch upper bout

3 inch waist

5 1/8 inch lower bout

1 3/8 inch sound box depth  

 

 

Prices start at just $350 shipped to your door USPS Priority insured. All Poplar with your choice of Rosewood, Boxwood or Ebony tuners and a shellac or hand rubbed oil finish.
