Song of the Wood
"For those who listen ... the wood does truly sing"
Hammered Dulcimers and More since 1975

Jerry Read Smith


Just got some gorgeous McSpadden Mountain Dulcimers back in stock!  I'll be posting links and details later today (03-06-23)

Song of the Wood hours:
If you would like to visit ... I would love to meet you!  I'm available 365 days a year 24/7.  I know that sounds a little hyperbolic but there is a caveat!  We would need to agree on a day and time.  Since I moved out of Black Mountain I am entirely "contained" in East Asheville ... at my home.  I guess the disadvantage is we have to have an appointment ... but ... the advantage is that you will have my undivided attention.  And ... Please ... don't think you have to make a purchase ... I love people more than things!

The Children's Hammered Dulcimer is here!  It's a 9/8 two Octave model in "C".  Comes with Case, Instruction book, Hammers and Tuning Wrench.


Since 1975 Jerry Read Smith has been building some of the most sought after hammered dulcimers in the industry.  Each dulcimer is beautifully handcrafted with care and precision calling upon Jerry's 47 years of experience and taking into account each player's individual desires, creating a one-of-a-kind instrument that both looks and sounds beautiful.  Jerry's desire is for each of these heirlooms to live "beyond the norm."

For inquiries or to be placed on the list for a new hammered dulcimer, call or email Jerry at 828-301-1622 or  He'll be happy to "meet" you and discuss the possibilities.

Please Note*  I do have a waiting list for my personal ... JRS Hammered Dulcimers.  Occasionally I'll have a prototype or used one so it's always good to check in!  If you can wait ... I'm happy to custom make one for YOU.
