Lotus Dulcimer

I designed this–and all the other hourglass shaped dulcimers–from scratch. The body is cherry with morado binding & fret board cap. Purfling is holly & morado. The inlayed lotus leaf sound hole design was drawn by Christina and is manzanita burl. A bit untraditional, this dulcimer has a fully chromatic fret pattern.

Lucy in the Sky played on this dulcimer-sort of.
