This dulcimer is constructed entirely of AMERICAN CHESTNUT harvested from a school in Jefferson, NC that was demolished circa late 1900’s. There are some characteristic tiny worm holes, mostly on the top, causing no problems only exhibiting a historic symbol of why american chestnut came to be called wormy chestnut.

The sound is clear, crisp and clean. All this comes in a medium loud pleasing voice.
