McSpadden Mountain Dulcimer


Instrument Categories: ,

The Mountain dulcimer has been popular on the folk scene for many decades. We have just started to detect a renewed interest in this easy-to-play historic instrument and have imported an exceptional quality American hand made example that features solid Walnut construction with geared tuners, heart shaped sound holes and a carved scroll peghead!

The McSpadden Mountain Dulcimer Company of Arkansas made their first mountain dulcimer in 1962.

They make only mountain dulcimers and their four full-time craftsmen have over a century of experience among them. The experience they have gained gives them the confidence to offer you a high-quality dulcimer at an affordable price, covered by a guarantee you can count on.

Traditionally played on the lap, the Mountain dulcimer has a haunting lyrical sound and can have you picking out tunes within minutes.

McSpadden dulcimers are top quality and suitable for professional use, live or in a recording studio. Their light weight – 2.2 lbs (1kg) for the instrument, 3.6 lbs (1.63kg) in the zippered case – helps make them easy to transport or play for longer periods.

The dulcimer pictured, model 4SHWW (4 string, Scroll Head, Walnut, Walnut),  is currently strung with a heavier gauge and tuned to baritone, which really fills out its sound.   It uses a 28 inch scale length and is normally tuned D-A-AA.

These instruments are sold with a zippered carrying case.
