 Product Description

Gold Tone enters the dulcimer world. Owner Robyn Rogers, a gifted Appalachian dulcimer player, has always wanted to include a dulcimer in our catalog of folk instruments. We did not want to replicate an existing model and instead wanted to create something unique. Our lap-style Weissenborn guitars are some of the more unique sounding hollowbody instruments in the acoustic world, so it was natural for us to eventually try a plucked-style dulcimer fingerboard and tuning using this body type, thus the "Dulciborn" was born!

Since the dulcimer uses light gauge strings, we were able to reduce the bracing size and use a very responsive Sitka spruce top. Compared to a typical cherry wood or mahogany hourglass shape dulcimer, the Dulciborn is louder, has better bass response, and strings attached to the bridge pins actually provide the top with greater energy and vibration. The maple binding, gold hardware, and highly figured rosewood laminate back and sides truely sets this instrument apart. We kept many of the traditional appointments like a scalloped fingerboard, 27" scale, bone nut and saddle, and traditional fret spacing. So even if you already own an Appalachian dulcimer, you need a Dulciborn. It is played exactly like conventional dulcimers, but with a great new look and full-bodied tone.

Why choose a dulciborn over a mountain dulcimer? It isn't that "one is better then the other" While the MT. Dulcimer has it's unique sound and playing style, The Dulcuborn plays the same way, but offers the ability to play alongside other acoustic instruments with better volume, warmer tone and more sustain than a traditional shaped Mt. Dulcimer. Due to it's construction, the Mt. Dulcimer lacks the volume and sustain and is unable to contribute to a "group" setting, unless amplified.

Every instrument receives a 12 point set-up and is thoroughly inspected before shipment. This takes additional time before shipping but insures that your instrument will be received without any flaws or issues and will be ready to play right out of the box!
