Solid cherry, with dovetail slides and wooden adjustment knobs. Set the height and angle to suit your needs for playing from a seated or a standing position. Springloaded hinges hold the legs apart while in use, and a simple knotted cord pulls the frame closed for compact storage and transport.
Front height adjustable from 23" to 35"
Back height adjustable from 27" to 45"
Assembling the Adjustable Dulcimer Stand requires sanding to round over sharp corners, and then gluing and screwing the parts together carefully to make sure the frame is square and the parts are oriented exactly as illustrated. Then apply a nice clear finish.
The stand is a marvelous piece of wood engineering. The wood is first rate and I finished it with tung oil. It is beautiful. The company was very helpful with a problem I had with a part and replaced it quickly.
Great company and product.

I'm loving my HD stand!
I was always worried that someone would trip on my hammered dulcimer scissor stand and I have been looking for a better option. My search led me to Music Makers and I decided to go with their kit. The stand is also available fully assembled.
The kit is made of beautiful solid cherry and all pieces were well machined. It just took sanding the hard edges to a slight radius, gluing and screwing the cross braces on, drilling pilot holes helps, and some light assembly. Then you're ready to finish. The thing I love about cherry is that it will naturally darken over time into that classic dark red and rich color.
This stand can be adjusted to play either standing or sitting height and the angle that the hammered dulcimer sits at is also adjustable. I like playing at an angle where I don't have to reach far.
I play a Russell Cook Signature Edition and it's very sturdy on this stand. There are no splayed legs for passerbys to trip on.
Buying and building this stand has been a great experience and it will be used ever day.
