Phone Tuner Holder


Our phones hold a lot of importance in our lives. Therefore, balancing this very precious device on your hammered dulcimer as you tune can be a bit anxiety-inducing.

But this new tool of ours allows your phone to rest securely as you use your tuning app, worry-free. And, one side offers more grip as an added bonus.


These days, many tuning apps are free to download on your phone, making it an easy decision to switch away from the electronic tuner. But for those of us who now use tuning apps to help tune our hammered dulcimer, we are faced with a new problem: we have to think about where to safely put our phone. Many people balance the phone precariously on the strings, or tie a rubber band around it for more friction (which can wear out).

With our Phone Tuner Holder, you no longer have to worry about your phone sliding down the strings as you tune (and possibly hitting the ground with a loud, devastating CRACK). This handy little tool rests securely on the strings, and you can easily move it to different areas as you advance through your tuning ritual.

We’ve tried it on dulcimers laying both horizontally and almost completely vertical with no issue, so the angle of the dulcimer should not make a difference. Additionally, we’ve tested to see if setting the Holder on the strings will throw them out of tune and it has not. The tension of dulcimer strings is pretty tight and the added weight seems to make no difference.

On the Phone Tuner Holder, we’ve also included a grippy foam shelf liner material on one side as an extra precautionary feature for your phone’s safety. This product will put your mind at ease knowing your precious phone is safe and secure while tuning your hammered dulcimer.

Add this handy Holder to your tuning toolkit today and worry less!

Availability: We are a small Mom and Pop enterprise, and can’t have everything we make in stock all the time.  We should have all of the accessories and small items all of the time.  We also try to keep natural Phoebe and Chickadee dulcimers around all of the time.  But other finishes or higher end models will be hit or miss.  We build dulcimers 6 of each model at a time to get the economy of scale, so if we have them, we have them, if not, it could be a month or two depending on where we are in our cycle.  If you have a deadline, please contact us for availability of what you are thinking of getting before placing the order.

Shipping Info:  A shipping calculator with all the functionality would cost us big money, so we opted to use the basic and reliable Paypal checkout system and include a reasonable average shipping cost on the price of each item.  If you order multiple items to ship in the same package, we will refund the extra via Paypal.

International Shipping: Our standard shipping amount is for shipments to the lower 48 United States. We can ship internationally, but not to everywhere. Our packages must go via US Postal Service to be as economical as possible. It depends on the rules of the receiving country what size package they will accept. In general most European countries are OK. Also Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. If you are wondering, you can check yourself on the Post Office website. Our most common package is 44 inches long, 24 inches wide, and 6 inches thick for a total length plus girth of 104 inches. They weigh 33 pounds. This should be enough info to get you a quote. You can always contact us for a quote, too.

Payment Info: We have been using Paypal for years, and believe it is the safest online way to pay.  You don’t need to have an account with them to use our Paypal checkout system, and best of all, we never need to know your credit card or bank details. Of course, we still like checks best since they don’t cost us money to process!  If you want to send us one in the mail, we would greatly appreciate it! Just don’t use the shopping cart, and contact us directly with your order, and we’ll work out the total and details.  You can also call us directly with a credit card number for payment.

Dealers: When possible, it is always best to go see and try out an instrument before buying. You can also get the input of a knowledgeable sales person. A good dealer will have in stock several different models of hammered dulcimer. Some will even have instruments from different makers, and it is very educational to see and hear the difference.

We have many trusted dealers all over the country that we have been working with for many years. We consider these folks close friends, and would not hesitate to recommend them to you. Contact us and we can put you in touch with someone near you.
