Chord Harp
THE CHORD HARP
We have been tinkering with a design for
a simple, chorded zither for a long time.
Inspired by a Chambered Nautilus encountered on one of his tropical adventures, Jerry
awoke in the middle of the night with the
idea of crossing the strings. And it worked!!
FEATURES
• 23" x 12" x 2"
• Weight: 5 pounds
• 20 strings (4 chords)
• Chords: D7 - G - C - F
• Rosettes Included
• Solid hardwood sides
• Plywood top and back
• Kit difficulty level
The Chord Harp is perfect for sing-a-longs around the
campfire or at family gatherings. You can learn to accompany yourself as you sing simple folk songs without having
to learn complicated fingering patterns. Each group of
strings is tuned to make a chord. The chords are laid out
in such a way that you can play hundreds of familiar songs
in 2 different keys. Choose the key that best fits your
voice.
If you have access to some woodworking tools, you’ll be
successful building our Pre-Cut Chord Harp Kit. We
provide easy to follow, step by step instructions with plenty of illustrations to guide you through the project from
start to finish. You can expect to spend about 8-12 hours
on assembly. You’ll need a dozen clamps, a belt sander, an
orbital sander, a drill press, woodworkers glue, and the finish of your choice.
New book by clinical harpist Lynda Kuckenbrod How to Play the Chord Harp
This book provides charts, diagrams, and general
information about tuning, how to hold it, strumming and picking patterns as well as a collection
of songs.

VOYAGEUR HARP
FEATURES
• 33 strings
• Range C2 to G6
• 56" tall, 27" deep, 14" wide
• Weight: 24 pounds - cherry
20 pounds - mahogany
• Woods: Cherry or mahogany body, neck & pillar, 6-ply aircraft birch soundboard
• Kit difficulty level -
The Voyageur Harp
represents the perfect
combination of style, tone,
portability and price. Big
impressive sound with a
full bass, rich mid, and
lively treble. Nice consistent tone from top to
bottom. Whether you are
a gigging harpist playing
weddings all summer or
just starting out - this is an
affordable harp that will
meet your needs.
Pre-cut kit
Available in cherry or
mahogany. Choose cherry
for a rich, elegant look or
mahogany if you want to
keep the weight down.
Building the pre-cut kit is a very rewarding experience. The Voyageur Harp kit brings together all of the lessons we have learned in
over 35 years of designing harp kits. You can assemble this harp in
about 20-30 hours using mostly hand tools. A router is helpful for
rounding corners, but an electric hand sander would do the job as
well. Building this kit represents a real cost savings and you will end
up with a performance quality harp.
Cherry harp shown with optional rosettes.
Order 2 large for the sides and/or 2 small for the neck.
Rosette styles on page 27.
We also offer this harp in-the-white. You just do a final sanding,
do any decorating you might like, apply a finish, and install all the
hardware and strings.

Thanks for the great work!

The pre-cut kit is a 15-20 hour project that has been greatly
simplified because of our easy bolt-together neck configuration. The body can be assembled using mostly hand tools
although a router (optional) does speed up the project.
We offer the Smartwood in-the-white as well. This configuration means the body has been assembled by us. You
will apply the finish, bolt the neck together, and install the
hardware.
This is our only harp we offer finished but unstrung. Order
this version and all you will have to do is bolt the neck together and install the strings.

REGENCY HARP
Regency Harp
Cherry
FEATURES
• 34 strings
• Range C2 to A6
• 62" tall, 29" deep, 16" wide
• Weight: 37 pounds
• Woods: Cherry body, neck & pillar
6-ply aircraft birch soundboard
• Kit difficulty level:
People appreciate the classic design and visual appeal of the
Regency Harp. It looks quite regal because of the large platform at the bottom. Despite the heft of this harp, it is supremely balanced so as to feel almost weightless while playing.
Many harpists tell us that this model is one of the best sounding folk harps on the market today.
Building this harp from our pre-cut kit is an immensely rewarding experience. Your friends simply won’t believe that you
could build such an exquisite musical instrument.
Expect to spend at least 40 hours assembling this kit. You’ll
want a large work table, a few clamps, an electric hand drill,
and power sander along with the normal supply of hand tools.
As with all of our kits, you will need to supply the wood
working glue and a varnish. (see page 29 for our finish kit)
Pre-cut kit
The kit went together with only one or two “memorable
moments”. The results are better than ever I could have
dreamed. When I played it the first time in our church,
the audio technician exclaimed, “You bought one with
the amplifier and speaker already inside!” No, it’s just
a Regency with full natural sound.

The pre-cut kit for this harp is greatly simplified because we have already glued the neck
and pillar together and all of the tuning pin
and bridge pin holes have been pre-drilled.
Your job will be to assemble the body. You’ll
want a few clamps for this. Sand, finish,
install the hardware and strings and you have
yourself a great lap harp! Expect to put in
about 20-30 hours.

GOTHIC HARP
Pre-cut kit
FEATURES
• 31 strings
• Range E2 to G6
• 60" tall, 24" deep, 18" wide
• Weight: 22 pounds - cherry
• Woods: Cherry body, neck & pillar,
6-ply aircraft birch soundboard
• Kit difficulty level:
Our Gothic Harp represents what
most people imagine when they think
of a harp. It has classic lines, elegant
curves, and a warm, mellow tone. Nylon strings throughout make this harp
incredibly soothing and easy to play.
Building the pre-cut kit is more challenging than others due to the curves
built into the soundboard and back.
You’ll want an extra pair of hands to help
install these pieces. You will also want
a large work table, a half dozen clamps,
electric drill, power sander, and a jig-saw,
along with normal household tools.
We have been building this model for
over 25 years and it has proved to be
our most stable harp, requiring less
tuning than any other model. The
stability comes from a combination
of lower string tension and the slight
curve built into the soundboard and
back piece.
Harp is shown with optional levers. Any Musicmakers harp can be fully outfitted with sharping levers.
Check out page 10 for more information.
I built my harp with absolutely no woodworking experience.
I didn’t understand at the time what a meaningful project it
would be, but it has been a very powerful part of my life as a
harpist to learn to play on an instrument I built. Thank you
for all that Musicmaker’s Kits does to help facilitate this relationship between musicians and their instruments.

SHARPING LEVERS
more info including asssembly videos online at
www.harpkit.com/levers
Harps are diatonic instruments. This means that,
without re-tuning, they will only play in one key.
Sharping levers are added to harps so you can
quickly change keys without re-tuning the harp.
Every Musicmakers harp can be completely outfitted with sharping levers. If you are able to successfully build one of our harps from a kit, you have
the skills to install these levers. We provide excellent
installation instructions for each brand. The Universal levers are the easiest to install but the Loveland
Levers aren’t much more difficult and offer a more
refined look.
Choose the installed option if you are ordering a
finished harp.
Voyaguer harp shown with Universal Levers. Gold color on the F and C strings.
HARP LIGHTS
Adding levers to your harp makes the instrument
more versatile and allows you to play many different
styles of music in nearly any key.
Easy to install on ANY harp!!
These self-adhesive lights are simple to
install. Just “peel and stick” the lights under
the neck of your harp. Power is supplied
from a 9 volt battery or by the optional AC
adaptor. Wiring connections are “plug and
play”. No soldering required!
Add some dramatic lighting to
your harp! Perfect for a candlelit
performance or as mood lighting in your living room. Bright
enough to light your strings and
sheet music so you can play with
no other light source.
The battery and most of the wiring is easily
hidden inside the body of the harp and held
in place with adhesive backed velcro.

Wheels are a must for people who take
their instruments out of the house.
The platform slides into a pocket in
the bottom of our gig bag, or can be
strapped under the harp without the
case. Includes a brake so you can stop
and play even with the wheels on.
People that play their harps in hospitals or elder care facilities love these
wheels. No more lugging your harp
from room to room. Just release the
break, tilt the harp back and roll away.
The 7” wheels easily handle small
bumps like elevators and door jambs.
The Harp Desk Kit is a good project to build
at home. You will glue the four pieces of the
clamp together, glue the desk to the ledge,
round over the sharp corners, sand, finish and
install the cork. You can download the complete assembly instructions from our website
for a step by step preview of the process.

The Parlor Guitar is slightly smaller
than a standard dreadnought acoustic
guitar. We like the proportions of this
size instrument and how easy it is to
play.
The Octave Mandolin has a rich
sound you have to hear to believe.
Uses the same chord shapes and
fingerings as a standard mandolin.
This instrument will add color to an
ensemble.
The Mandocello has the lowest tuning of all the Dakota Instruments.
Same tuning as a cello but no bow
required. You won’t want to put this
one down!

Dakota Instruments
The pre-cut kits for the Dakota Instruments are highly refined projects
with beautiful woods and lots of customizing options for inlays, rosettes,
and finishes. When finished, these kits make professional quality instruments with impressive tone and playability.
Parlor Guitar Kit
The parlor guitar kit parts are shown to the right. All of the
Dakota instruments are rated at 4 hammers because of the
level of involvement and the attention to detail that is required for assembly. Expect to put in 40+ hours to complete one of these
instruments. You’ll want to take your time and give this project your best
effort because you are going to have an instrument that you will cherish
and play for years to come.
If you don’t have the time or desire to build a pre-cut kit, consider the
in-the-white option. You’ll get the instrument already assembled but you
will do a final sanding, apply a finish, and install the hardware and strings.
Faster yet, just order the finished instrument ready to play!

The Concert Ukulele is the most common size ukulele. It is one of the easier
fretted instruments to learn how to play
and is popular with all ages and for all
styles of music.
The Baritone Ukulele has the ease of
playability as the concert uke, but is
tuned lower. Tuning is the same as the
highest 4 strings on a guitar so you can
use the same chord forms.

Hourglass
The Mountain Dulcimer is a true piece
of American Folk Art. The instrument
comes to us from the southern Appalachian Mountains which is where it gets
its other common name, the Appalachian
Dulcimer. Its long history and continued
popularity are due to the fact that the
instrument is relatively easy to build and
simple to play. The sound is pure, sweet,
and as simple as the pastoral pleasures
these instruments evoke.
Shown with optional medium rosettes (page 27)
Folks have been making these by hand here in America since the 19th century. Musicmakers has made it easy for you to join this rich tradition with
two different syles of mountain dulcimers. The hourglass style is a more
traditional shape and the teardrop style is slightly easier to build.
Expect to spend between 20-30 hours building from our pre-cut kit. Adding some decorative inlay banding (page 27) around the edge is great way
to customize this project. You’ll need a router if you want to do that.
Dulcimer built by
Don Brodowicz
I finally finished my second dulcimer. I have
enjoyed building the second as much as the
first. Hope to see you in September to purchase
more supplies. Keep up the enthusiasm and
contact with your customers. Thank you.

HAMMERED DULCIMER
FEATURES
• 66 strings, steel and bronze wound
• 17/16 bridge layout
• 19" wide at top, 40" wide at bottom
• 19-1/2" front to back, 2-3/4" deep
• Solid mahogany top
• Maple frame
• Weight: 17.5 pounds
• Kit difficulty level:
The Hammered Dulcimer is a fascinating instrument
to play. You strike the strings with hammers and each
note rings out beautifully, making even simple, unadorned melodies sound rich and full. The rhythmic
possibilites inherent in the striking style of the hammers make this a fun percussive instrument too.
Our pre-cut kit takes about 20-30 hours to build.
You’ll want a good supply of clamps, a power sander,
and a drill press for this project. You can order medium
rosettes (page 27) for the soundholes or cut out your
own design. Installing all 66 strings is a wonderful way
to cultivate patience.

I have been extremely pleased with the 17/16 hammered
dulcimer built from your kit and on the service provided
by you and your staff. As a retired “bean counter” who had
never built anything in the past, I was not sure if I would
manage to build a musical instrument, but your kit instructions and the kit itself made it relatively easy.

I have been playing the reverie harp at least once a week since January
during meditation class. Without exception, everyone in the class has
expressed appreciation for the deep state of grace that the sound from this
instrument brings to them in their meditation. Another way I have been
blessed by the harp has been during my visits to a local hospital. It has
been such a gift to me to feel joy when I look in their eyes while I play for
them. I could go on, but suffice it to say that your gift has changed my
life in ways I cannot express adequately in words.

great project to decorate. The
optional large rosette (page

FEATURES
• 15 strings, steel
• Range: C4 to C6
• 28" long, 10" height
• Laminated birch top
• Hardwood frame
• Weight: 2-3/4 pounds
• Includes set of 8 songsheets
• Kit difficulty level:
Order this in-the-white and
we assemble and drill the kit
for you, leaving the finishing
and stringing for you.
The Hognose Psaltery continues to be a popular choice
partly because it makes for a gentle introduction to musical instrument building. It is also a great instrument to
introduce children to the musical scale. Or use it to add a
nice touch to period plays and festivals.

side. Just bow along one edge or the other
to play the notes you want - no fingering

for trimming the front and

The design of this Old World Lyre is

Choose either nylon strings for a mellow, harp-like sound, or wire strings
for a brighter tone with more sustain.

our Renaissance Guitar has the
the shape of a 17th century lutestyle instrument. Adds authenticity to period festivals and events.
It plays just like a standard guitar,

Strumbly has been one of our most
popular projects since we introduced it in
2006. If you can count to ten, you can
play Strumbly. We’ve heard from lots of
people that were frustrated with guitar
but found success on Strumbly. We
have a play-by-number songbook written specifically for this instrument that
includes over 125 songs.
FEATURES
• 3 strings, steel
• 25" long, 8" wide, 1-3/4" deep
• 1.8 pounds
• 23-1/2” scale length
• Rosette included (see page 27)
• Kit difficulty level:
What is Strumbly?
Simply put, Strumbly is the easiest
fretted musical instrument you will ever play.
Our pre-cut kit is about a 10-15 hour project. You’ll
glue the frame to the neck which is greatly simplified
thanks to the slots cut into the heel. Glue on the front
and back and then trim and sand. The fret-slots are
pre cut and the holes for the tuners are pre-drilled.
Sand, decorate, apply some varnish, string it up and
start strumming! Download the assembly instructions
for a detailed preview of the assembly process.

CARDBOARD KITS
FEATURES
• 4 strings • 33” long • 25” scale length
• Kit difficulty level:
Our cardboard guitars and dulcimers are very
popular both at home and as school projects.
The body pieces are laser cut so the shape of the
instrument is just right everytime. The white
cardboard is just begging for fun decorations.
You’ll be amazed at the sound and durability
of these instruments. Both kits use real geared
tuners so they hold pitch extremely well and are
easy to tune.
Kids can build a musical instrument in
about four hours!
Discount
pricing on 12
or more kits.
These cardboard kits are most suited to
ages 9 and up but younger children will
enjoy the projects too if they are assisted
by an adult.
Cardboard Guitar Kit Parts
Each kit includes a simple songbook.
Kids are much more motivated to learn
to play an instrument they helped build!
Our simple 2-chord song approach gets
them playing real songs right away.

CIGAR BOX UKE
We provide the cigar box, the pre-cut
wood neck, and all the musical hardware and strings along with complete
assembly instructions to build a working ukulele.
Have your own cigar box? Just order
the hardware pack and pre-cut neck.
FEATURES
• 4 strings
• 20" long
• 14" scale length
• Tuning: GCEA
• Kit difficulty level:
Micah is not quite five. He was able to help with the sanding, screwing the
neck to the box (after I drilled the holes), holding one end of the strings
taut while I tied the knots, threading the strings through the holes in the
tuning pins, and turning the tuning key. It was his choice to mount the
neck on the bottom of the box so he can open the secret compartment more
easily. I glued on the toothpicks, broke off the ends and applied the handrubbed (tung oil) finish.
Thanks for the FUN PROJECT!

All of the projects on these two pages are rated at 1-2
hammers. They go together using regular household
tools and only take between 4-8 hours to assemble. These
are fun weekend projects and all are suitable for kids ages
10+ Quantity discounts available.
The best thing about these instruments is that they really
play! We have designed all of these projects so that they
make real musical instruments, not just toys.
The Thumb Pianos are a HUGE hit at our house! Our family
loves playing music together. The girls have figured out “Heart
and Soul” to play together :) Their piano lessons have taught
them to use their ears to try to figure out different songs /
melodies. We love the beautiful instruments we purchased from
Music Makers! We will definitely encourage
friends to check out your website. :)
-Krista
The pre-cut kit is a simple
weekend project. It will take
about 6-8 hours to glue the
parts together, sand, apply a
finish, and install the hardware.

Our selection and variety of musical strings will help you get just about any
instrument strung up!
If you are designing your own instrument you will find two extremely useful, free resources on our website to help you find the correct strings.
The String Analysis Spreadsheet provides valuable information on string
tension and the article Secrets of the Harmonic Curve explains the “string
window”, saving you hours of trial and error and lots of broken strings.
Both of these resources can be found on our website in the library. Just

For the past 16 years I have watched Jerry share his joy and creativity with countless souls. He’s been
helping people build musical instruments for a long time now and decided the time was right to retire.
My wife, Stephanie, and I are thrilled and honored to take on the role of ownership and to continue the
work Jerry began 37 years ago.
My background couldn’t be better suited to Musicmakers. I enjoy playing an eclectic array of music on
guitar and mandolin and I am a complete nerd about lutherie and woodworking. Ask me about how to
sharpen a chisel or about bracing patterns on guitars and I’m likely to talk your ear off. I have a background in science education and a passion for teaching and lifelong learning. Basically, if you drew a
venn diagram of my passions, Musicmakers would be right there in the middle.
Stephanie has a social services background and has spent the last 15 years working with battered
women and homeless mothers. She will be helping out part time in the office as well as continuing
to work part time as a family coach. She is excited to get involved in Musicmakers and is particularly
interested in the music therapy aspect of what we do.
I couldn’t do this alone and I’m thankful I don’t have to. We have an amazing team here at Musicmakers. Cody, Mikaela, Matt, and Sharon keep the front office humming while Zach, Tim, and I make the
sawdust fly. And Jerry isn’t ready to leave quite yet. He’ll still be working his wonders 3 days a week.
We have something wonderful at Musicmakers. The experience of building and playing musical instruments is something worth sharing with the world and I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to do so.
