The beautiful walnut dulcimer I used in this demo is an example of my electric dulcimers. There are many different style electric dulcimers, some solid-body, some acoustic, some with active pickups, and some with passive pickups. All are exciting to play, and offer a wide range of sound options.

I use the same style and design on all my electric dulcimers. They are acoustic, with active pickups. Acoustic because I want my electrics to look and play like standard dulcimers. Active pickups because I want a clear sound, free of interference. Active also provides on-board controls allowing the player to change the settings without adjusting the external amplifier.

The most often asked question is, "can I play the dulcimer without electric, and how will it sound". The answer is Yes. And adding electric has no effect on the "stand-alone" sound of the instrument.
