Gold Tone enters the dulcimer world. Owner Robyn Rogers, a gifted Appalachian dulcimer player, has always wanted to include a dulcimer in our catalog of folk instruments. Gold Tone did not want to replicate an existing model and instead wanted to create something unique. The lap-style Weissenborn guitars are some of the most unique sounding hollow body instruments in the acoustic world, so it was natural to eventually try a plucked-style dulcimer fingerboard and tuning using this body type, thus the “Dulciborn” was born!

Since the dulcimer uses light gauge strings, Gold Tone was 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 strings attached to the bridge pins actually provide the top with greater energy and vibration. The maple binding, gold hardware, and highly figured rosewood laminate back and sides truely sets this instrument apart. Gold Tone kept many of the traditional appointments like a scalloped fingerboard, 27″ scale, bone nut and saddle, and traditional fret spacing. So even if you already own an Appalachian dulcimer, you need a Dulciborn. It is played exactly like conventional dulcimers, but with a great new look and full-bodied tone.
