Features: 4 strings, geared tuners, nickel silver frets, clear semi-gloss finish, 2 1/2 octaves 6 1/2 and 13 1/2 frets.

"stereo sound" of Cedar Creek, but made of 
all solid book matched hardwoods which 
gives the Walnut Classic not only a richer look, but a richer smoother sound.

            A Word About Kits

The dulcimer kits are about the same difficulty level as a model airplane. It requires fairly basic woodworking skills such as sanding, gluing, hand trimming and putting on a finish. Only simple household tools are needed: sandpaper, coping saw or ex-acto knife, drill, wire snips, file, glue and finish. The only 2 areas involving cutting are trimming the top and bottom around the edge of the frame and cutting the sound holes. Patterns are provided, but if you want us to cut the sound holes for you, please ADD $15.00 to the cost of your kit.

If you want to learn to play, but don't want to spend very much, this is for you! Plays the same way as any dulcimer and has a surprisingly good tone. Heavy cardboard body with a wooden fretboard. Comes with a pick, noter and instructions. Great for classrooms!
