Dulcimer buying Guide Checklist
- Buy only dulcimer made with solid wood only. Dulcimer made with laminated wood usually don’t sound as good
- Dulcimers made in the US are generally better.
- Choose scale length relative to your height. Anyone 5’2” or shorter should start with 26” or shorter scale length dulcimer
- Beware of buying an older dulcimer, dulcimers made before 1975 often need work before they are playable.
