Wildwood Flower Hourglass DulcimerPosted by WebMstrs on Dec 5, 2012 in Dulcimers, Gallery | 0 comments
We do not build many hourglass-shaped model (even though that is the most traditional shape) because they simply don’t sound as good as the teardrop shape, unless the relative sizes of the lower and upper bouts are kept in the sort of relationship seen on this instrument. I believe this model had a mahogany back, sides and stock, a sitka spruce top and a white oak fingerboard. The edges are bound in Oregon myrtle. Today, it would sell for $275.
