Poplar Mountain Dulcimer

Mountain Dulcimer made of Poplar

Joe’s favorite.  The Poplar tree is Tennessee’s state tree and the shape of the poplar leaf makes very beautiful sound holes.  This dulcimer is very light and has a wonderful sound quality.

Price $330.00           SOLD.       We’re in process building more.  Currently have a cherry dulcimer  under construction.  Contact us if you have a specific choice of woods or features in mind.

While Poplar is classified as a hardwood, its end grain is not as dense as other hardwoods so we have inlaid a piece of cherry where the strings bear on the tailpiece.  Both nut and bridge are of ebony.
