Stick Dulcimer Shop page

In September of 2008 I began the Video series about making a Stick Dulcimer on Youtube, In contrast to my other instruments at the time  I decided to make the instructions and videos free to all with only the plans needing to be bought if desired.

case downloadslideshow for Making a Stick Dulcimer case,  
With a number of these stick Dulcimers being made all around the globe I thought it would be useful to show one way that I use to make a simple strong case,  Hopefully this will inspire you to have a go,  If you have just made a Stick Dulcimer this will be relatively simple.   Where I can I try to use shop bought timber and the Miller Dowel system to make my cases.

Brass Stick Dulcimer tailpiece

This is the newer version of my Stick Dulcimer tailpiece made by a local engineering firm out of 2mm brass, this comes supplied with the endpin and screw, plus self adhesive cork pads to protect the soundboard and mute the strings.
