Molly McCurdy  -  Mountain dulcimers

Molly McCurdy

I have been building custom designed mountain dulcimers for about 35 years. Buyers play a big role in designing the instrument he or she wants with custom designed sound holes, dulcimer shape, type of wood and optional woodburning. Prices range from $350 up, depending on the amount of detail involved. I offer a few free beginner's lessons with purchase.

Living in the foothills of North Carolina, I am an instrument maker & old time musician. My instruments include the mountain dulcimer & fiddles. With 20 years experience, my specialty has been the fiddle. Recently my attention has been turned also to crafting mountain dulcimers. Crafted individually from various appalachian wood, this makes these instruments unique & often one-of-a-kind. I take great pride in creating 100% pure quality instruments. Thank you for stopping by to take a look.

Tom Fellenbaum  -  Currently building Mountain Dulcimers, Mandolins, Octave Mandolins and Irish Bouzoukis.

Tom Fellenbaum

I have been building dulcimers since 1975 and to date have made over 1150 dulcimers. Most are crafted out of native woods with some exotics used for fretboards. While I build many instruments on speculation to be sold in our retail outlet (Acoustic Corner) I enjoy custom building to a customers specifications and am available to talk about custom instruments either in person at my shop or over the phone. Deposits are usually not required unless the instrument is to be personalized in some manner. Lead time on custom orders is 8-10 weeks and your satisfaction is guaranteed. Please visit my website www.celticmandolins.com for pricing info as well as any instruments currently available for sale.
