Bradford Jennings  -  Mountain Dulcimers, Stick Dulcimers, Harps and Ukuleles

Bradford Jennings

I take pride in finding those rare pieces of wood to turn them into beautiful working works of art. I always try to put my personal artistic flare into each piece and make each piece just a little different. I love building instruments and enjoy playing them just as much. This is a passion for me and I love to share it.

I build various stringed instruments with a recent concentration on mountain dulcimers. Probst's dulcimers have a unique modern look and are designed to deliver beautiful tone with lots of volume and sustain. A pin-less bridge allows for various string set-ups. All wood & components are of premium quality.
