The best place to purchase a hammered dulcimer is by attending one of the many festivals in the States. The event held in Evart, Michigan is the largest dulcimer festival in the World! It is called the Dulcimer Funfest and it is held the third week in July of each year. See page on festivals for more information or click on this link here www.dulcimers.com See other drop down tabs for other ideas on how to obtain an instrument.

Thanks to the generosity of Peggie Ward, SODA received a hammered dulcimer in 2012. This is available to new players who would like to try out the instrument before investing in one of their own. Please contact us for details on how you could rent this instrument.
Have you ever broken a string and wanted to replace it? Most builders need to know your string width/size.
An Electronic Caliper with a Digital Display can be purchased at local hardware stores. This will help you determine the size that you will need.
