Well, my new Dusty Strings D35 finally arrived on my doorstep yesterday!!! It traveled all the way from Houston (folkharp.com), and was still in tune! Needless to say, I did not get much sleep last night and I am having a hard time concentrating at work (well, we got all of our work done for the week, so I do not know why I am here). I thought there was a place in the forum to put up a pic of our dulcimers, but I could not find it. So, I hope no one minds me showing it off here.
I am not only happy with the sound and feel of this instrument, but I really like the redish color of it too!
What is even more cool is that my wife and I are going to an event at Lake Texhoma (on the boarder of Texas and Oklahoma for those outside of the U.S.) this weekend called "Old Country Weekend." It is a 2 day event that focuses on dances from one or more countries (this year is Bulgarian dances). They will have live musicians and some of the music could not be played on a 12/11.....but, it sure can be played on a 16/15! So, this instrument got here just in time.
