Most of you know I have been working on two mountain dulcimers for a while and now they are finished. Both have been tweaked and messed with and they do play well now. This was a very rewarding build. Not so much at first when we did not think the #1 teardrop would ever tune. The #2 hour glass one was a pleasure all the way thru. Wifey has been playing it off and on for two days now and says the sound is very good. She has three dulcimers now and even I can hear the unique different sound in each of them. If this is of interest to anyone you can go to the blog section to read my learning experience. I guess the dulcimer is the easiest stringed instrument to make but let me say they are not a piece of cake. Thanks for looking and listening to me for the last time on this subject. Comments and PM’s always welcome.
