SOLD-Olympia Dulcimer w/ Hard Case, Extras - Excellent

Postby frets alot » Mon Apr 03, 2017 6:07 pm

2011 Olympia Walkabout Dulcimer (D-tuning), Deluxe Series, Custom Woods:
I commissioned Kevin Jones (owner of Olympia Dulcimer Company (ODC)) to build this Walkabout Dulcimer in 2011. I chose the following for the woods and configuration:
Top - spruce
Back and Sides and Headstock Overlay - palo escrito
Fingerboard and Bridge - pau ferro
1+ and 6+ frets
6 strings - 3 double course sets

YouTube Video:
Kevin Jones created a video of this walkabout dulcimer after it was constructed, that shows pictures of the dulcimer, along with an audio of it being played.

Deluxe Hardshell Case:
Upgrade. Made by G&G.
Lockable, with 2 keys included.

Condition:
Both the dulcimer and the case are in excellent condition, with no dings or dents. I am VERY anal about taking care of all my instruments (I own quite a few stringed instruments (a musician for 44 years) and know how to properly take care of wooden, stringed instruments). It comes from a humidity-controlled, smoke-free home.

Many Extras Included with the Sale:
- 2 complete new string sets, from ODC
- Shubb capo
- Levy brown leather strap
- Martin brown leather headstock tie
- ODC owner's manual
- Picture album of the dulcimer as it was being built, taken by Kevin Jones

Price, Payment, and Details:
$430 - which includes free shipping, via UPS Ground (insured) to CONUS.
Payment through PayPal.
No returns.
I have sold and shipped many instruments through forums and Ebay. Never any issues.

String gauges please, and what are strings tuned to. Left handed or right handed?

Right handed.

Tuned to DAD, but alternative tunings are possible, as outlined in the manual to achieve different modes.

melody - .012, .012
middle - .023, .023
bass - .030, .012

From bottom (closest to the floor) to top:
.012
.012

.023
.023

.030
.012
