About Hammered Dulcimers

Though it has roots in the folk music traditions of many different cultures, hammered dulcimer is much more than "just a folk instrument." It has a gorgeous and captivating sound, is easy to learn, and can be everything from a simple jam-around-the-campfire instrument to a professional performer's tool. We invite you to explore this fascinating world, and if it's all new to you, we recommend starting with the Beginner's Guide. We also love to talk about dulcimers, so you are welcome to call us and ask questions at any point!
