Dana, congratulations on your newest acquisition.  I can't wait to see and hear it when you got it all fixed up. I'm sure Warren May will do a fine job.

I can see where it would be very easy to accumulate multiple dulcimers. This one is a beauty. Can't wait to hear it.

Beautiful, Dana.  I've always loved the appearance of the Ledford models that had simple diamond-shaped soundholes.  (The first Ledford I ever saw had them - the one given to the English folk singer Shirley Collins by Alan Lomax in the 50s.)

  Wonderful! I'd be real interested in a rundown of every thing Mr. May does. I know that it will be quality work and that your Ledford will be a real treasure.

Dana, what a beautiful dulcimer--even more so when Warren gets through with it!  I'm looking forward to seeing it again.

Good eye, Dana, you got yourself a treasure!  It'll be neat to hear it sing!

Great find!!!  Thanks for sharing.  I look forward to seeing it when its all fixed up.  Love those staple frets!

That's a really lovely instrument

If I ever had a Ledford then this one is exactly the style I would love - 3 string with staple frets. PERFECT!!!!!

Great find, and keep us posted, can't wait to hear it. Umm, Number 1163, you sure that's not the number of Ledfords  you own now?  You knew that was coming! Congrats Dana, know you're tickled pink!

   Congrats on a great find there Dana, can't wait to hear it sing.

Visit Strumelia's Beginner Noter-Drone dulcimer Blog

I have a main blog for Traditional style mountain dulcimer playing here: Mountain Dulcimer Noter-drone Blog This is an old style of playing where you only fret your notes on the melody string, while letting the drones strings ring open. In my blog, I express my personal views about playing, I offer free TAB and free beginner videos, and I try to help beginners understand in a very basic simple way the 'mysteries' of playing the mountain dulcimer in traditional modal noter/drone style.
