Wonderful David Lindsey Bill Spence Edition 16/16 hammered dulcimer $950.00

Our friend Steve Cole asked us to sell this great dulcimer for him.  Steve jams with us every week, and also has one of our smaller and lighter Chickadee Chromatics that he plays.  He's got COPD and is getting short winded and doesn't want to try and drag the bigger dulcimer around any more.  He wants to take the money and buy a 4 wheeler so he can get up and down the bank to the river by his house to fish.  He's a really sweet guy.

If you've been thinking of getting one of these dulcimers, you should jump on this one.  It has a fantastic sound and is utterly stable.  A few nicks, but only cosmetic.  The three string treble gives it more punch, and it is a jam animal! 

This link is to a video of it being played so you can see and hear it in action.

Comes with the case pictured, one set of hammers and a tuning wrench.  The new price of an outfit just like this is $1495.00, so this is a bargain.  This one was built in 2014, so about 4 years old.  $950 plus shipping.  If we had to send it to California, it would probably be over $50.00.  If you are interested, call us.  563-571-5296 is my number.  563-260-7877 is Melanie's.  Or email us at 

Beautiful David Lindsey Bill Spence Edition 16/15 hammered dulcimer $1200.00. Lots of extras

We are selling this lovely dulcimer for our friend Barb Fick who simply decided the hammered dulcimer isn't for her.  Great dulcimer in virtually new condition, includes the case pictured, and adjustable stand, a music holder specifically for dulcimers, 2 pair of hammers, the tuning wrench, and lots of paperwork.  From what we can gather, this one was made in 2011.  Barb bought it from an older lady, and neither of them played it much.

This link is to a video of it being played so you can hear and see it in action.

You would need to pay for shipping, and the stand will come in a separate box.  If we had to ship everything to California, it would be around $75.00.  If you are interested, call us 563-571-5296 is my number.  Melanie's is 563-260-7877.  Or email us at

The Phoebe Chromatic is our best workhorse dulcimer.  Good enough that you may never want to upgrade to something else.  Even though I could play any dulcimer that  I want, it is usually a Phoebe Chromatic that I choose.  There are no dulcimers that are better, only fancier, more highly decorated, or built of more costly woods.  Fully chromatic over 3 octaves, durable, stable, sounds great, you can't buy a dulcimer with this much functionality anywhere else for twice this price.  So if you've been thinking about a good hammered dulcimer for yourself or for a loved one, now is the time!
