The Red Kite

£310 including padded bag

Mark, Janis and Chas with some Red Kites

We are very proud to announce the commissioning of The Red Kite mountain dulcimer.  These beautiful instruments are being built from local walnut and other North American hardwoods in the Hagen family's workshop in the Ozark mountains, USA. 

The Red Kite is the national bird of Wales and a magnificent resident of the Dysinni Valley, home of Bird Rock Dulcimers.  So we just had to have a mountian dulcimer built in its honour!

You can see the picture story of how these instruments are made on the Red Kite Sound Sample page.

We usually have a good selection of Red Kites in stock as they are our most popular dulcimer.  Please call or email for a current stock list.
