The “Bill Spence Edition” Dulcimer

These dulcimers are "custom made" and are NOT stock items. An order form is enclosed allowing you to pick your options. A $500 deposit is required to place your order. It will take approximately 4 to 6 months for your dulcimer to be built. You will be contacted when your order is received to verify otion details and time of completion. Shipping charges will be added at the time of completion. Please feel free to contact Guy (e-mail or call) if you have any questions.

This newly designed model is a full-size instrument of the type made only by David Lindsey, with the professional-quality tone and dynamic range that David builds into all his dulcimers. The Bill Spence Model has a true “Grand Style” floating soundboard, supported at its side edges only, to eliminate vibration-damping center supports and to permit it to vibrate more freely than a soundboard whose top and bottom edges are glued in place. It now offers 3 strings per course on the treble to enhance its dynamic range.

Features:

 

Range: 3 octaves, from D below middle C to G''

 

Low A on the first note on the bass bridge to give it extra range for key of A

 

Lightweight: weighs in under 20 pounds!

 

16 treble courses with 3 strings per course

 

16 bass courses with 2 strings per course

 

Materials: Pin blocks are made of laminated hard maple piano pin blocks

End rails and sides are of maple, walnut, cherry or ash

 

Exotic woods, special bindings, redwood soundboard, and inlays are available

 

Soundboards available in western red cedar, and sitka spruce. Stained or black soundboards add $100

 

David's Dulcimers specially-designed rosettes and inlaid bridge course markers are standard equipment

 

Price includes hammers, tuning wrench and a custom padded Cordura case
