OMG John!! That is a totally awesome instrument. I saw one at a festival a couple of years ago and fell in love with the sound. You do a wonderful job playing it too. On my wish list!!! You hear me Santa???

Chuck, this is one of the two that they had at Dulcimerville.  It has a voice and a half!  Thanks for checking it out!

Good ole Percy Loved the sound of the slide too

Thanks Dusty!  Sorry, but I've been a Cowboys fan since birth lol.  I think that this is an instrument that people would really enjoy, but many folks don't know that they exist.  I know that there are a few different "brands" out there for folks to choose from, but I happened to choose this one and haven't regretted it one bit.  Thanks for the nice comments, and Percy says "hey" to you!

That's a cool-sounding instrument. I could easily see it playing the role of slide guitar for bluesy stuff or a dobro for bluegrass. And I love the syncopation on the first version of Spotted Pony.

I won't comment on the evil Cowboys shirt,  but I will say that Percy looks like he could use a glass of Miracle Gro.

Thanks for sharing this. Now I have another dulcimer on my wish list.

Thanks Mike!  It does indeed, but the sound on my camera stinks so I have to plug in to get any "low" sound at all.

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.
