Maker of Hand Crafted Hammered Dulcimers

Our Story

The Iris Sound Hole 
The trademark of Mike’s Dulcimers

In 1987, I designed the first HD200 and begin looking for an appropriate sound hole trademark. Although leaves and animal shapes were attractive and popular designs, I wanted a design more appropriate for a personal trademark. That year I found a pictoral calendar of popular flowers, one especially caught my attention – the Iris.

I decided, this was to be the sound hole for my dulcimers: not only for its uniqueness, but also to give honor to my wife of 22 years, Iris.
