The number of people who play the dulcimer is small compared to the number of people who play guitars. So, if you play the dulcimer, consider yourself an elite! V-PICKS is proud to offer our dulcimerist hand-made dulcimer picks!
What is a Dulcimer?
A dulcimer is a stringed musical instrument which you can play by strumming with your fingers, picking with a pick, striking with a hammer, or playing with a bow. Dulcimers come in different shapes and sizes. Some are large enough to stand upright while others are small enough to balance on your lap. Dulcimers are beautiful instruments shaped like a trapezoid, a teardrop, or an hourglass. The hammered dulcimers have many strings and are played with handheld hammers. In contrast, the fretted dulcimers have three or four strings and are played by strumming and picking while it is placed across your lap. V-Picks offers the best in dulcimer picks.
We currently offer two types of dulcimer picks: a lite pick (1.5 mm thick) and an ultra lite pick (0.8 mm thick). The ultra lite pick is slightly flexible whereas the lite version has no flex at all. Both are named “Bing” after the fabulous folk artist Bing Futch. Do yourself a favor and try our V-pick “Bing”.
