The owners, Mike and Connie Clemmer are absolutely one of the best in the business. Not only do they offer classes in playing instruments, they build them. They periodically hold workshops where they bring the best of the best instructors to teach on different levels of playing. You will not be disappointed with the level of expertise they offer.
When you enter the shop you immediately see that it's not only a store, but also the gathering place for musicians of all shapes, sizes and inclinations. The woman who assisted us took a lot of time to talk about the instruments and show us how to play them. We spent more than 2 hours on the tiny store trying... 更多
I had read about this shop on my Everything Dulcimer Facebook Page for years. We stopped and the staff was extraordinary. I have mountain dulcimers and a hammered dulcimer, but I left the shop with a bowed psaltery. My wife even found one she liked, These folks are the nicest you will meet.
My wife has a dulcimer, but no one to teach her how to use it. She has been looking for some tutorials in our home town, but without success. We visited this shop before and so we decided to come back. Mike was very helpful and he had exactly what my wife was looking for. Very nice store with a... 更多

The lady there was very generous with her time. She gave me a basic lesson and some tips. She even gave me a lesson on the hammered dulcimer!!! They... 更多
Mike and Connie are the friendliest folks you will ever meet in the Smokies area! Their staff is knowledgeable and friendly, too. The quantity (and quality), selection and display of fine stringed musical instruments can't be beat. A Must-See on your visit to Townsend.
If you want to experience mountain music at the grassroots level, check out Wood-N-Strings. Mike Clemmer makes some of the best dulcimers available and carries a wide selection of instruments available. You can go inexpensive or opt for one of Mike's custom made dulcimers. Previously enjoyed instruments are also available. Mike himself is usually available on the weekends to answer... 更多
We found out about this place while in Metamora, IN. The person I talked to said they had free dulcimer music performances out back on Saturdays (check site for time and dates). So we visited the store during business hours. Even though they were very busy, the owner did talk to me once I got his attention. He even showed... 更多
What a wonderful store, great people, great music. Relationship is their real product. During the summer, there is some fine music for free..out back. The instruments that Mike makes are beautiful works of art for eyes and ears.
