Stick Dulcimer Forum!

Full size printed plans now available!

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 I decided to make the instructions and videos free to all with only the plans needing to be bought if desired.  (The Stick DVD-rom is available too though for reference)

Payments are handled online via paypal,  you can use any credit/debit card and do not need an account.  There are other options, let me know, I can also take payment by cash and direct bank transfer.   Payments by cheques are only possible from the UK

Instruments that are available for sale are also listed below

Please also check out my other plans I have available on my other plan Download page

case downloadFree Pdf/slideshow for Making a Stick Dulcimer case,  
downloadWith 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.
