Master Works is the baby of National Hammer Dulcimer champion Russell Cook. A superb player, he now builds world-class instruments. Now his dulcimers are among the very few chosen for national competition. His trained craftsmen also make bowed psalteries.
His atelier is a sensory delight — the woody smell, the satiny finish of the instruments, the colors and grain of the woods and the sounds of the instruments draw visitors from all over the world. Learn more about these interesting — and ancient — instruments and view the antique dulcimers around the walls. Even if you’re not tempted to buy an instrument — they run from about $700 to $5000 — you can take a beautiful memory by buying one of Russell’s CDs.
