This site,, is well worth a visit both for the extensive information about playing dulcimers and their history but also to see the beautiful stick dulcimers and three-string guitars individually handcrafted by artisan, Michael Sedore. While Michael always has a number of instruments ready for sale, he will also make yours to order. You can see his instruments for sale on Etsy or order directly from him which is a less expensive option. Huguette, his wife, makes wonderful gig bags and other items.

Strings attached: Making dulcimers a labour of love
