The Dulci-jo is a combination of a banjo and a dulcimer. Since we make both instruments, it was only a matter of time that we combined the two (though we did not invent it). The Dulci-jo has the old-time sound of a mountain banjo, but is played exactly like a dulcimer. That banjo sound is great for playing the old tunes of the mountains or for Civil War songs. The banjo head amplifies the sound making the Dulci-jo louder than a standard dulcimer. The head is a 5" Remo finger drum made of a synthetic material called fiberskyn that never needs adjusting. The Dulci-jo can be tuned either DAA or DAD.
The Dulci-jo comes in either black walnut or cherry wood on the back and sides. The top is cedar. It measures 37" long, 8" wide, and 2 1/2" deep. The string length is 27". The sound holes are the standard f-hole design. The Dulci-jo will fit into our cases. All of our Dulci-jos are $269.00 each.
