OVERVIEW

A unique take on this instrument that is pure Americana.

With the Dulciborn, Gold Tone enters the dulcimer world. Gold Tone's owner Robyn Rogers, a gifted Appalachian dulcimer player in his own right, always wanted to include a dulcimer in their catalog of folk instruments. Gold-Tone's lap-style Weissenborn guitars are some of the more unique sounding hollowbody instruments in the acoustic world, so it was natural for them to try a plucked-style dulcimer fingerboard and tuning using the same body type, thus the “Dulciborn” was born.

Since the dulcimer uses light gauge strings, they were able to reduce the bracing size and use a very responsive Sitka spruce top. Compared to a typical cherry wood or mahogany hourglass shape dulcimer, the Dulciborn is louder, has better bass response, and it has strings attached to the bridge pins to actually provide the top with greater energy and vibration. The maple binding, gold hardware, and highly figured rosewood laminate back and sides truly sets this instrument apart. Many traditional appointments were kept, like a scalloped fingerboard, 27″ scale, bone nut and saddle, and traditional fret spacing. So even if you already own an Appalachian dulcimer, the Dulciborn is a must-have. It is played exactly like conventional dulcimers, but with a fresh look and full-bodied tone. Includes hardshell case.
