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.
On this page you will find the Printed version of the plans,  tailpieces, strings and straps,  and the link to the digital plan downloads

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.
